Film Review: The Black Dahlia

17 Sep

Plot: An adaptation of James Ellroy’s novel about two 1940s L.A. cops who head up the hunt for the killer of starlet Elizabeth Short. Directed by Brian de Palma.

Excessive visuals but lacking in substance. I fear for all future adaptations of James Ellroy’s novels. Maybe de Palma should have learned a thing or two from Curtis Hanson, I meant no disrespect sir, but this film was terrible!
