Editorial Reviews

Kiefer Sutherland (Flatliners, Young Guns) is Chicago Joe, a World War II American serviceman. Emily Lloyd (In Country) is Georgina, an aspiring showgirl. When they meet, passion and desire fuel a dangerous fantasy. He is the big-time gangster, she is the glamorous moll. They go for a reckless drive. They steal a fur coat. Each time she dares him to take a wilder risk, and each time he proves himself. Until their lust for excitement demands nothing short of going "all the way" - to murder. CHICAGO JOE AND THE SHOWGIRL is the shocking true story of two strangers who meet, mingle and lock into a dangerous world of their own.

Kiefer is the best, he was born to be an actor...so natural. I love the sensitive side of him and it's not just acting, he really gets into his charactor and thats what makes him one of the best top 10 actors of all times

This movie is really bad. I love all Kiefer Sutherland movies except this one. It was a very poor production.

Man was this one disturbing movie. If it wasn't positively 100% true I may not have reacted so strongly,but this film IS true with no characters or events altered.Sometimes real life is better than Hollywood.Let me explain.

CHICAGO JOE AND THE SHOWGIRL is a sober a chilling account of a Yank and a showgirl over a five day period in 1944 War ravaged London.It is the faithful retelling of two people,one "Chicago Joe" a.k.a. Ricky Allen (Kiefer Sutherland) who is a self- agrandized wannabe thug living out this "double life" as an American Army Lieutenant and "Georgina"(Emily Lloyd) a two-bit London showgirl with delusions of being Barbara Stanwyck.These two meet on October 3,1944 and for the next five nights go on a joyride spree that becomes increasingly dangerous to the point of killing.This is the ultimate "I dare you to do it" film. As Sutherland's Ricky becomes increasing unsure of what and why he is in this "relationship", Lloyd's Georgina becomes a positive sociopath and is absolutely bone-chilling in this role.She smiles as she sees blood and watches people suffer.It is unnerving at best.

Director Bernard Rose whose later successes include IMMORTAL BELOVED,CANDYMAN,ANNA KARENINA and TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. cleverly styles this film after the famous gangster/femme fatale "noir" films of the Era.At times the viewer is not sure what is true and what is cinema just like the dilemma of the two main characters who begin to obscure reality and fantasy.This is a darkly filmed and darkly portrayed piece of modern day "noir" and is cleverly built up to a most surprising climax (that totally surprised me!)

A really neat and nifty piece of work.A second viewing makes it all the more interesting.Emily Lloyd is really creepy.
