The Black Dahlia Movie Review by Shannon (10/27/2012)

This picture was based on a novel of the same title by James Ellroy (who is probably best known for writing "L.A. Confidential), who was likely inspired by the real life 1947 "Black Dahlia" murder. This film was nominated for Best Cinematography at the 79th Academy Awards, but lost to Pan's Labyrinth.

It got a bad rap...

It wasn't meant to be the modern day cinematic equivalent of CSI. The theories put out there in the movie are from a fictional...

The Black Dahlia Movie Review by Jen (9/26/2006)

Could there be a movie any more convoluted while still being over the top? This is a case of the old film school warning "You can make a BAD movie without a good script, but you can't make a GOOD movie without a good script." Or good performances for that matter.

The film is visually beautiful. DePalma uses color and his...
