    Early on, it's tempting to dismiss the noir pastiche The Girl From the Naked Eye as a warmed-over pulp wannabe, what with the overwrought camera work and clich├ęd dialogue. But in its moments of sometimes comically violent antagonism, the movie shows some flashes of genre pizazz.

    The Girl from the Naked Eye has heart, which is more than can be said of some other recent genre throwbacks, but it ultimately makes barely a splash.

    It isn't a great movie, but it looks terrific and makes me look forward to the next film by its director, David Ren. He has a good eye.

    So deadpan are the dialogue and narration that it's hard to tell whether the laughs are intentional. What with all the shrieking, dumb bad-girl hookers and the wistful, wounded good-girl hookers, the sexism is so creepy it might be an ironic genre critique. Then again, maybe it's just creepy.

    Too bad the film itself is so derivative, it could have been assembled from Robert Rodriguez's discard bin.

    There are dozens of better, riskier, more interesting films that go unreleased every year - why this militantly dull effort is taking their place is its only worthwhile mystery.

    Gets one's attention but doesn't keep it, due to ill-cued flashbacks, groan-inducing dialogue and wooden performances.
