“I am on a hot streak this year regarding indie films noir. This is the fourth Iu0026#39;ve seen and itu0026#39;s the best so far. I know, I know, I said that about u0026quot;The American Sideu0026quot;, but this oneu0026#39;s even better. But I donu0026#39;t think you can see it, at least in the NYC area – it got here on a Thursday, I saw it on Monday, and itu0026#39;s leaving on Wednesday; 7 days exposure, and in only one theater.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn a nutshell; Porter (Adrien Brody) writes a column in a tabloid and covers accidents and murders. He meets Caroline (Yvonne Strahovski) at a party and tells him she has a problem, but he must come to her apartment to get the details. Her husband, a kinky movie director, was recently murdered and it is still unsolved. He volunteers to help. The publisher of his paper also enlists his help to find a compromising tape made of him. (of course, there is a connection).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot and script is as good as it is absorbing. u0026quot;Manhattan Nightu0026quot; starts off slowly for the first 40 minutes, but the last hour is riveting. And I can guarantee youu0026#39;ve never seen a more offbeat story. Adrien Brody is perfect as a noir detective (in this case, a writer) and Ms. Strahovski is a knockout as well as a very competent actress. Too bad you wonu0026#39;t be able to see this one.”
