Somewhere in the Night

"OK"

Somewhere in the Night Review


Somewhere in the night... there's an answer to the almost silly riddles of this film, which is almost by-the-numbers in its offering up of an amnesiac ex-G.I. who goes searching for his past, and uncovers nothing but mystery and mayhem... and, of course, crime galore. Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, in one of his first directorial endeavors, bungles a good portion of the story, leaving us alterately baffled and incredulous. Nonetheless, it's smashingly photographed in the classic styles of the genre.
