Critic Reviews of "Manhattan Night"Kate Erbland indieWireJanuary 02, 2017
Despite being rife with crime, sex and darkness, Manhattan Night feels increasingly like a cheap ripoff of the genre it so very much wants to fit into.Brad Wheeler Globe and MailAugust 26, 2016
Director DeCubellis is frightfully beholden to the tropes of the genre, and the premise (involving blackmail, strange dares and an inexplicable horse story) is just not credible.Bruce Diones New YorkerMay 30, 2016
The thrilling twists and turns of Harrison's plot are here, but DeCubellis's hazy pacing drains the film of the book's zest. Though great material mishandled is frustrating to view, there are nonetheless some bright spots.Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.comMay 20, 2016
It's pretty frustrating to watch a close-but-no-cigar movie like this.Noel Murray Los Angeles TimesMay 19, 2016
It's not a great movie but a welcome one, if only for how it attempts to revive a whole genre.Stephen Holden New York TimesMay 19, 2016
What sounds so delicious in the telling is pallid and ludicrous onscreen.Luis Fernando Galván En FilmeMarch 14, 2017
A mystery film that involves videotapes, blackmail, seduction games and assassinations. In his ambition to create a noir film, director Brian DeCubellis fails in his attempt and only offers an incoherent story. [Full review in Spanish]Javier Perez Cine PremiereMarch 13, 2017
DeCubellis never manages to captivate the viewer and doesn't have the necessary dramatic tensions. [Full review in Spanish]Chris Knight National PostAugust 26, 2016
Manhattan Night isn't a great example of the genre, but it's the best you'll get this side of 1959.Norman Wilner NOW TorontoAugust 24, 2016
The best noir films are as dry as their heroes; the self-consciousness of Manhattan Night makes it awfully hard to appreciate the things it does well.Christine N. Ziemba Paste MagazineMay 23, 2016
It's bogged down by hackneyed characters that do no justice to the film noir titles it tries to emulate.Todd JorgensonMay 20, 2016
... generates some mild suspense, but ultimately it's too convoluted and far-fetched to allow for any investment in the payoff.
