Enjoyed this. Captivating is the right word, so much so you get maximum marks. Voice over quality could be improved in places but doesn't detract from the movie much.

One word: Captivating! Music goes perfectly with the mood of the film. The voice overs were really good except the quality of the sound could have been better. Can't wait to see part 2

Just watched subway ninjas and a tall tale back to back and I'm guessing you used 'ninjas' as a starting block for tall tale...this one is your true calling...stick with it and finish it because it's good, good stuff!

Some of the best plot development I've seen in a 3-minute movie! Congratulations. The VO does a great job of setting the mood, despite some uneven quality and popping on the sharp sounds. Overall, a very good job.

Director Edmund King brings to the screen the white hot noir thriller, A Tall Tail (Part 1) and displays his displays his talent as a fine film maker. Star Mark Perfrement has just the right distant macho cool to fill out the lead role. And what a great voice! The film moves through the night of the big city and sets up a series of mysterious events that leave the audience hanging in anticipation of Part two.
(Really fine work. Noir is a tough nut to crack as I am finding out on my new picture. Keep it up. I am fascinated.)

Poor Frank. I'll check out part two and write more on that page.

Nice beginning to this mystery, I'm interested in seeing what comes next. Voice over was good, but sounded like it was recorded on a bad microphone which detracted from it somewhat. I would have like to see it edited a bit more to give the premade scenes a more custom feel; as it is now some of them feel a bit "canned." Overall an enjoyable movie.

Some mic noise but a good film. Missing some noir conventions like the femme fatale. But awesome voice overs.

I especially liked the 'camerawork'. It captures the atmosphere nicely, as does the voice-over. Good work!

Great job. The voiceovers were a little muffled at first but it cleared up pretty quick. Then I realized just how good they were. Perfect for this type of film. I really like how it ended as well.

Kind of has a Maltese Falcon, Max Payne Film Noir kind of feel, which I love. People should do more Noir on here!

Make it longer, and you may have a hit. Fix the sound too. Otherwise, very entertaining.

film noir with hard-boiled setting, always one of my favourtie genre. The narrative was really great, fits with the background music and the settings perfectly (wish I have a voice like that, haha)

The story reminded me a bit of Max Payne, but hey, that's where film noir's fun is! :D

great job! I am off to see the 2nd episode now :)

The voice acting is superb. Wish that it wan't so much of a mystery most of the time though, and that it had an ending.

Hmm, not bad: you have the atmosphere there, but mind the popping "p"s when you narrate (hold the microphone to the side of your mouth, not in front), and sometimes it's a little over-narrated (make more use of pauses and don't state the obvious, such as "I was standing outside the Chief's office" over a shot of him standing outside the chief's office...). And why the Dickens does he drag his friend's body back to the police station?! Has he never heard of forensics?

Yes, very good job... I'm not a big fan of film noir, but I can tell a great deal of effort and care went into this.

I just started working on a film noir and find it to be very difficult. I was suprised how well you pulled it off!

This movie will captivate the audience with both mystery and emotion. I'm awaiting part two.

Good:
- Great dialogue (good voice for the genre!)
- Interesting plot!
- Excellent use of timeline and location subtitles
- Moving ending (can't wait for sequal!)
- Mark Perfrement really fit his role (genre fit +)

Bad:
- Minor plot holes (He brings his friends body to the station?)
- Few SFX
- Some VOs become echoed (try muting sound during recording)

4/5 Stars!

Pretty good movie. Didn't understand how his partner died. Why would the murderer stand him up against the door....unless it's a warning.... I look forward to the next movie. Great Work
