I found this project to be a waste of talented actors. The plot was laughable, and the 'twists, and complexity' of it was choppy, and implausible. The things that I enjoyed about it, were the ambience, and the 'feeling' of film noir, and the detail to costuming, technical style of filming (when it showed one character at the bottom of the stairs, and the other at the top of the stairs, both in focus) In this respect, it was a very good 'period piece' visually, but unfortunately, it did not have enough substance the trailers indicated it would plot-wise, and plot, to me is paramount to enjoy a movie. Personally, if I had to recommend a movie that I thought 'The Black Dahlia' should have been, watch 'L. A. Confidential'.
