Dark Bar

Anna, a young saxophone player, searches for the killers of her sister Elizabeth who have been involved with "the gangs from the North" (some of the least scary loooking gangsters you'll ever see). All traces leads to a club called Dark Bar.

Considering Stelio Fiorenza history as assistant director on the infamous Play Motel, you'd be forgiven for expecting Dark Bar to be a similarly sleazy affair. In reality it's a far more subdued film. I'd heard some good things about this, but ultimately found it a lackluster thriller that is lacking in both suspense and style. I'm far more fond of the poster than the actual film. Poster art by Sciotti
