Dark Streets is a 2008 dramatic thriller, set in New York during the 1930s, directed by Rachel Samuels. The film is an adaptation of a play by Glenn M. Stewart. In the film, Chaz Davenport (Gabriel Mann) is living a luxurious life. He is a handsome eligible bachelor who is the owner of a hot new nightclub and has his pick of any woman he wants. Patrons loyally flock to the club to enjoy the blues music and girls dancing on stage. The only problem is the city is suffering from rolling blackouts, which interrupt his business. Even though the club is making money, Chaz is having a hard time covering his overhead. His life is further complicated by a loan shark who is tired of waiting for his money and a troublesome love triangle between him, Crystal (Bijou Phillips), the club singer, and Madelaine (Izabella Miko), a new club dancer.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    The movie, drawn from Wallace King's adaptation of Glenn Stewart's play, drips with style, but it's all flourish and no reveal.

    The New York Times Nathan Lee

    Diverting enough as a series of music videos, Dark Streets strikes postures in place of drama.

    Variety

    As a dancing chanteuse, Bijou Phillips gives it her all, which isn't enough, and a wooden Mann doesn't help, although Izabella Miko brings a modicum of unaffected charm to her role...
