Kiss Daddy Goodnight (1988)

kiss_daddy_goodnight

A young woman who seduces rich men in order to rob them is harassed by an neighbour obsessed with his estranged daughter.

Purporting to be a Film Noir, this dismal straight to DVD effort is really nothing more than a deeply substandard stalker movie. A very young Uma Thurman is lovely to look at but is obviously taking her first faltering steps into cinema and clearly does not yet have the confidence to carry a film. The direction is clumsy and amateurish, the sound so badly recorded and mixed that the background traffic is often all you can hear and the cinematographer seems to think that “noir” means “pitch black”. As for the simplistic plot, it often contains nothing more than the love interest wandering around meeting people that have nothing to do with the story. One of these, Steve Buscemi, the fellow “star” of the film brings the only glimpse of quality but he is only in it for a couple of minutes and his character, like the entire supporting cast, is utterly irrelevant.

The entire project is so amateurish it seems obvious that it was little more than a student project that was only released to cash in on the subsequent fame of the actors involved. Not only that but it’s a student project that deserved a bit, fat “F”.
