5.0 out of 5 stars Classic noir, 15 Mar. 2004
This review is from: In A Lonely Place [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This is a dark, beautiful film from director Nicholas Ray, best known for "Rebel Without A Cause". Ray was one of Hollywood's outsiders with a reputation for dark, edgy pictures that went against the grain of what a commercial movie should be. "In A Lonely Place" finds the brilliantly-cast Bogart as a weary, volatile, couldn't-care-less screenwriter who is mistakenly suspected of the murder of a young girl. The mysterious, ice-cool blonde nextdoor (Gloria Grahame) gives him an alibi... but why? The pair proceed to seduce each other but their complex relationship is put to the test by Bogart's insecurities and barely suppressed temper... is he capable of murder after all?
It's a powerful, well-written film with a suitably moody L.A feel, a terrific anti-hero performance from Bogart (proof of his acting chops and why he was such a big star), and a fittingly well-wrought climax. One of my favourite '50s movies.
