Review To do The Black Dahlia up proper would take several weeks of an HBO miniseries. James Ellroy's sprawling novel of murder and sexual obsession is too epic in scope to contain in a single feature film. But director Brian De Palma and screenwriter Josh Friedman aim for the fences in their new big-screen adaptation...The Black Dahlia does not offer a satisfying whole. What it has are moments, and some of those - any scene with Kirshner, nearly all with Eckhart - are what make the whole endeavor worthwhile. It's not the most captivating James Ellroy adaptation ever made, but it's worth a look.

ReviewSource Variety
Review A literally ripping good yarn is undercut by some lackluster performances and late-inning overripe melodrama in "The Black Dahlia." Based on James Ellroy's estimable fictional account of what was, for 47 years, Los Angeles' most notorious unsolved murder, this lushly rendered noir finds director Brian De Palma in fine visual fettle as he pulls off at least three characteristically eye-popping set pieces while trying, with mixed success, to keep some pretty cockeyed plotlines under control...Mark Isham's moody, old-fashioned score is one of his best, pumping up the dread and suspense and often providing emotional substance where the actors can't manage it.
