If this review were an Edgar G. Ulmer movie, it would be covered in fog, have a sweeping orchestral score (public domain of course), and SFist would be a nihilistic outsider desperate for acceptance.
One-out-of-three ain't bad.
Edgar G. Ulmer, the Poverty Row director responsible for such ultra-low budget classics as Detour, The Man From Planet X, and The Black Cat, has gained a cult following amongst film geeks and independent filmmakers because he was always able to do something interesting and innovative, even while working within the confines of a very limited budget and shooting schedule. Nicknamed the "King of the B's," he could also be considered the father of independent cinema. Without Ulmer, there would be no San Francisco International Film Festival!
