CROOKED CREEK is in one sense a classical noir thriller, and, in another sense, it is a film that reinvents the genre with a male fatale as well as a femme fatale. Unlike conventional noirs that take place in urban environments, CROOKED CREEK repositions noir’s dark themes in small town Middle America as it engages the audience emotionally, intellectually and morally.
