reminded me of memento, but is also like moontide and black angel in that the protagonist can’t really remember his role in a dastardly deed. the film is primarily driven by the mystery caused by the protagonist’s amnesia and it keeps things interesting throughout. the acting isn’t great. hodiak reminds me a bit of a poor man’s vincent price. richard conte is reliable as usual. part of the film takes place by the waterfront and the lead man ends up being a private detective (though we/he don’t know this until the last scene). nice noir.
