What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Whispering City

    A noirish "B" with no-name cast, anonymously directed, full of wildly unlikely coincidences, thuddingly obvious "surprises," and riddled with cliches of the genre - starting with its standard noirish "B" title. The only notable things about it are that it's a Canadian noirish "B," and that it's the final film of emigre director Fyodor Otsep, whose post-Soviet career saw him scattering films in half a dozen countries.
