Devil In A Blue Dress was on telly at 3am this morning. I remembered in fact that I have read some of the Mosley ones featuring Easy Rawlings (and some not featuring him in fact) and somehow I'm not sure that Denzel Washington was exactly how I pictured him. Whatever though, it was a perfectly good noir film with femme fatales and twisty turns and a complex plot (in fact at the end, as with The Big Sleep, there were a couple of bits that didn't entirely seem to make sense to me after the main stuff was sorted out - might be cos I was a bit tired when watching and lost concentration at times) and a little dash of race stuff in there too. Don Cheadle was good as the semi-psychotic Mouse, though again not as I imagined him, but probably more an issue with me than anything else. So not hugely above any other solid, decent neo-noir, but recommended for anyone in these troubled times who is looking for a well-acted nice-looking mystery thing with all the tropes in the right place yet never quite feeling that you've seen it before (well maybe a bit).
