This movie has intriguing subject matter, has been done at least 3 times I know of and everytime it is done poorly. I don't get it. Still waiting for a version that has actors capable of focusing on the characters surrounding this terrible crime. I know what the crime was, I want to understand more about who may have done it, why, what were the reactions to the police clues that lead them not to solve it etc.

Old school film noir. Have you ever watched a film with someone who is easily distracted and finds it hard to concentrate so they result in asking questions like "Who's that guy?" "Why did he shoot her?" "Is the floor sticky?"... This film turns you into that moron because it's over complicated. When you eventually find the difference between your arse and elbow, it's conclusion time which lacks impact. You will be disappointed.

Maybe because of my age I viewed this differently than most. De Palma nailed the 1940's genre of the old Bogey and Bacall Black and White blockbusters. Excellent music, camera angles, and yes almost silent screen face shots that say more than 1000 words. I can't believe I missed this when it came out. No it's not perfect, but a definite 8/10 for me!

The story is a bit too romanced for my taste but the history of the black dhalia is an intriguing one and this movie tries too hard to fill in the blanks. Still there are a lot of good choices in it. The Madness of Fiona Shaw and a tortured Josh Hartnett that leads you in every dark corner of the city. 7/10

This was my second attempt to watch it, but still could not watch more than 40 minutes. Very very slow moving.. The style was captured well though, maybe the genre is not for everyone.

I'm a huge fan of film Noir, and Neo-Noir movies. This movie had so much potential, it was highly stylized ,the cast was outstanding, the subject matter very intriguing, the execution well... I place the blame mainly on the screenwriter, and the director , which is a shame because i liked De Palma when he did the untouchables. David Lynch and David Cronenberg are surreal, this was poorly focused.

It's a good psychological thriller, but it was cheesy in some parts and I'm not sure if that was intentional.

This is o.k. I think they were concentrating on keeping all the fats straight and the movie true to the story, which didn't give them a lot of room to be creative as far as adding to the movie, things that would be memorable in a crime detective genre. But the facts are important, if you're doing a movie about a real story. Still a decent watch though. 7/10

Everybody, please read the description of the movie before you talk about "how it didn't focus enough on the victim". It's not about the victim. It's about two cops who's lives fall apart while investigating the Black Dahlia murder.

Im going to have to watch it again, but the first time I saw it, I couldn't even finish it, it got too weird. I was originally drawn to the movie because the Black Dahlia murder was fascinating to me, and very tragic, and if done well, could have been a great movie. This, not so much a great movie, just a one time watch, and if youre like me and didn't finish it, youll watch it twice and skip the end just to see what goes down. Will post again after I see the ending, maybe it will become more redeemable. Thanks for reading, x&o

i remember seeing this one at the cinema and it was so horrible that me and friend ended up laughing at some of the scenes instead of being scared.. 2/10 (for some laughs)

The acting in this movie is bad, very bad. With a movie with some great actors, this movie is such a disappointment.

I think this is one of those "love it or hate it" movies. I thought it was quite charming stylistically, and beautifully captured post-war Los Angeles. I think some of the negative comments are due to the fact that this has been marketed as a thriller, which is a little misleading. It's really more of a period crime drama. If you're looking for edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting action, you won't find it here. But if you enjoy a well-crafted, authentic-feeling piece of historical fiction, I think you'll enjoy this movie.

This could have been a good tribute to classic film noir, which is what I had been expecting. The narration started well, as did the sets and costuming. The lighting, cinematography (although good, not in that noir style) and script really didn't live up to expectations. It lost direction and focus at times and although not a bad film, I wouldn't call it a good one, either. You may like it, though, so if you like period crime dramas based on real events, you may enjoy this. Definitely a one watch film for me.
