QUOTES

• “Powerful! ‘In the Shadow’ intriguingly brings a film noir sensibility to a time of great political tension, in much the same way Warner Bros. created socially conscious Hollywood entertainments in the 1930s and 1940s.” - Eddie Cockrell, Variety.

• “A sleek, gorgeously old-fashioned noir that is stylish, yet clean and controlled… recalls the Coen Brother’s masterful ‘Miller’s Crossing.’” – Beth Hanna, Indiewire.

• “A scathing, expertly directed political commentary.” – Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
