Perhaps Ten 'til Noon is not exactly Citizen Kane, and perhaps all of the puzzle pieces never add up to anything but an engaging hour in the theater, but watching all the bits come together keeps you awake for the length of the film.

An impressive tour de force of writing and realization in its capacity to keep us in the grip of virtuoso noir intricacy. The Cinema Signal is green -- Go!
