Feels like the 80-minute cut of a 2-hour film. Everything is truncated, especially the love story and the conflict between the partners. Still worth watching for the ideas expressed, Fuller's camera work and a great performance from James Shigeta.

A noir that to it's detriment forgets about the crime that it begins with in favor of a melodramatic love story, and only returns to the beginning at the very end of the film.

Doesn't have quite the same punch as Fuller's best movies, but it has some great moments. In particular, the opening is, on some level, pulp brilliance, with a stripper performing a routine and leaving a club just to get shot down in the streets of LA. C'mon, that's just great.

The potentially interesting main foci of this (barely-a-)noir are jealousy, racism and how people will imagine what others think of them and extrapolate, even when they might easily be mistaken. But Fuller only manages to scratch at the surface level.

Love, love, love the locations of this film--authentic shots of 1950's Los Angeles give the movie a gritty sense of place that helps to root the fundamental dilemma--Joe's identity crisis--in the real world. Both of the cops are full characters with complex motivations, while appearances from the always enjoyable Anna Lee help with the pacing.

A shockingly, refreshingly socially liberal film for its time, and even for today in too many ways. A gritty noir, romantic melodrama, and moving buddy picture all in one delicious confection. It also has lovely performances from the four main actors, including a scene-stealing turn by Anna Lee as the full of piss and vinegar, booze swilling, lovelorn, hard-bitten feministic painter Mac. It doesn't hurt either that Shigeta, Corbett (those eyes!), and Shaw were all easy on the eyes here.

Fuller uses a seedy crime to launch into an exploration of identity and race relations. A Burlesque dancer, two cops and two artists take center stage, and while all five are initially presented as just that, the the plot that intertwines their personal and professional lives uncovers quite a bit about how they're perceived by others, how they perceive themselves, and the interplay between the two.

A delightful surprise. It may be as subtle as a sledgehammer but Fuller creates a brisk crime mystery/drama which is willing to go from exploitation to a fascinating take on Japanese American culture within the space of a few minutes. James Shigeta steals the entire film as an exceptionally charming but thoughtful homicide detective, but everyone else is just as good.

Part noir crime thriller, part love triangle, part racial issues movie. It handles all parts with some finesse, but it's the last that is the most striking. Fuller treats Japanese-Americans with a respect and dignity you don't see much of, even in today's films. Not a condescending stereotype in sight, even Asian music is incorporated into the score without a hint of caricature. The film has a good deal of style and makes excellent use of Los Angeles locations.

Fuller's crime melodrama deals bluntly with issues of racism and miscegenation. Graphic and fascinating, but not a major film.
