Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the Blues and mystery of Dark Streets. Chaz Davenport (Gabriel Mann) is a dashing playboy who has it all: a hot nightclub, two glamorous singers (Bijou Phillips, Izabella Miko) and the most seductive music ever created playing from his stage. But when he enlists help to look into the sinister circumstances surrounding his father's death, Davenport's life spirals out of control. Dark, sexy and sensuous, this music-driven journey smolders with a smoking hot score and a soundtrack that includes 9 original songs with vocal performances by Solomon Burke, Natalie Cole, Etta James, Dr. John, Aaron Neville, Bijou Phillips, Richie Sambora, Toledo and More!

Format: DVD
Admittedly it is tough, very tough to make a modern film noir in color that gives that gritty feel of something like Bogart and Bacall in the 1940s classic age of film noir in the "Big Sleep". And this small film doesn't try to do that. However, its does have a very bluesy feel to it as advertised. The plot line is a familiar one of a good guy (here in the guise of a debt-ridden nightclub owner dealing with his father's mysterious death) of greed , intrigue and treachery, in this case involving the nefarious doings of covering up a crime in the process of cornering the electric market of an obviously corrupt and wide open city (and state). The dialogue is also somewhat stilted. One would think that such a combination calls for a thumbs down. Not so. Why? Go back to that bluesy feel. From the two fetching femme fatale torch singers who vie for said night club owner's attentions, to the chorus girls doing, well doing their thing, to the black dancer/singer/narrator who holds the whole thing together (and puts on amazing Michael Jackson-like song and dance performances to boot). And here's the topper- a sound track with the likes of Etta James and Doctor John in the back. My friends, this is a no-brainer in these quarters.

This film is like being cast back into the smoke and arty obscurantism of an open-mike poetry reading in the hippie 1960's. Actually, the action is supposedly set in a sort of mythical 1930's. The narrator of the film is a "blues man" who doubles as an announcer/acrobat at a New Orleans nightclub. He tries to draw us into the smoke rings with labored profundities about life and the blues.

But it's all just too much pretentiousness and strained portentousness. In his basso bourbon voice, the narrator does deliver one or two telling lines, such as "They say the meek inherit the earth. But usually, they just end up under the earth." For the most part though, his utterances are labored reaches after philosophical, dramatic import.

There is no believable plot here - actually no plot at all other than some broad comic-book strokes. There are ruthless villains who seek to control the City by controlling the electrical power supply. There are slinky chanteuses. You have to hope the style will become the story. But since the film is shot through such heavy filters and consequently is so dark and murky that it's hard to see anything on the screen, even the style usually gets lost.

The DVD jacket vaunts the movie for its music - for the blues singers featured on it, such as Etta James. But if you want music, get just the music. Why wade through this pretense of a plot to get there?

The story line is pure shtick. The acting is so bad I found myself laughing in places that clearly were not meant to be funny. . .but the music makes this film sooo delectable. I have a soft spot for the blues and this fills that spot.

Someone said, if it’s just the music, then buy a cd. But the music is just the cake. It may be delicious red velvet cake, but you still need the frosting. And the frosting is the dance & production numbers, the costumes (both the guys & the dolls) and those big, shiny 1930’s era cars. Treat your sweet tooth and take a bite out this delicious film.

Its confusing and rapid fire when it does try to explain the story, but all that said it has magnificent music and is visually stunning... so yeah enjoyable if you aren't trying to make too much sense of it.
