This gives noir thrillers a bad name

You thought the 1973 Long Goodbye was about as bad as noir could get, but this trumps it in spades. Apart from being overlong (we did give up 40 mins before the end hen it seemed to have been going on for ever, and then finished it the next night where it just got very silly as all was explained), there were no likeable characters (well actually no characters at all - just cardboard cutouts, no drama, no content - just a selection of pretty images of silly young people.

Why two stars and not one? well there was the germ of a plot there and at times it was good to look at.
