Critic Reviews of "Night and the City"VarietyApril 15, 2008
Jules Dassin, in his direction, manages extraordinarily interesting backgrounds, realistically filmed to create a feeling both of suspense and mounting menace.New York TimesJanuary 28, 2006
A pointless, trashy yarn.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Inclined to go over the top, it all too clearly contains the seeds of Dassin's later -- and disastrous -- pretensions.Village VoiceMarch 25, 2003
A moody piece of Wellesian chiaroscuro (shot by Max Greene, né Mutz Greenbaum) and an occasionally discomfiting underworld plunge.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
Before he met Melina Mercouri and became an Artist, Jules Dassin made a number of worthwhile thrillers as a Hollywood contract director.Scene-Stealers.comOctober 07, 2015
