The naked city, known for its ingenuity particularly in shots on location, tends fall flat as a whole. The story itself is fairly dull and the clues feel so half-assed. I found myself not caring about any of the characters, sans the city itself.
The titular character is by far the best part about this film. Narrated by the producer (awkward), the Naked City provides some of the best parts about this film. Most notably I enjoyed the monochrome shots at night, the stairwells, and the bridge among others.
Couldn’t stand the voice of the Lieutenant. Got a good kick out of the wrestlers, reminded me of Bruno Sammartino and the like.
Overall, it was alright. Definitely cool for it’s trailblazing, not much else.
