HASH(0x9e65ec60) out of 5 stars Underrated Lang Oct. 6 2010
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Fritz Lang's next-to-last Hollywood endeavor was this cynical newspaper melodrama highlighted by a fine ensemble cast. "While the City Sleeps" (1956) does not rank among the legendary director's masterpieces, yet he handles the multiple storylines with atmospheric verve. Intriguingly enough, Lang's attention remains focused on the modern media environment rather than the "Lipstick Killer" subplot. Released toward the end of the noir cycle, "While the City Sleeps" rises above its B-movie budget and deserves to be seen more than once.

HASH(0x9e65ecb4) out of 5 stars A multifaceted drama! Nov. 1 2011
By Hiram Gòmez Pardo Venezuela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When a series of brutal sex murders plague the city that never sleeps, a bloody power struggle takes place inside of one of the most most prestigious newspapers in the city.

The legacy of Walter Kyne (the letter K is closely uppercase great resemblance to Charles Foster Kane, is not it?) Has passed to his son, a dilettante, superficial and banal human being, three names emerged as possible candidates: Griffith the city editor, Mark Loving the wire service editor and Harry Kritzer.

Of course we have the renegade in action at only one of them who "has no appetite for power," the last words to exchange with Kyne father before he died. Edward Mobley (Dana Andrews) The antihero of the plot is a friendly and efficient reporter who likes to drink openly in love with a coworker Nancy is fiercely determined only find the truth at any cost.

The search of the serial murderer is nothing but a cover to go into the insatiable, frenzied struggle to gain the favor of the new tycoon.

This film is far from being the most outstanding film of Fritz Lang but it is a brilliant satire - which would precede to The Sweet Smell of Success two years later.

HASH(0x9e662108) out of 5 stars "Catch Me Before I Kill Again"! Oct. 4 2013
By Smrz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"While The City Sleeps" is a late period film noir directed by Fritz Lang with a large roster of well known actors that displays how Lang's style had become very refined by the time of this film. Unlike many film noirs previously done, this one has quite the pedigree of actors that include Dana Andrews, Rhonda Fleming, George Sanders, Howard Duff, Vincent Price, Thomas Mitchell, Ida Lupino, James Craig, Sally Forest, and John Barrymore, Jr. Barrymore, is the son of the great actor John, as well as the father of Drew Barrymore. He plays the "lipstick killer" who is responsible for a series of brutal murders of women within New York City. The film is a multifaceted drama, in which two equally interesting threads-the lipstick killings and the competition for the New York Sentinel's editorship-are very well woven together. This is because Walter Kyne, Jr., played by Vincent Price, announces a competition among his staff which rewards the one who unmasks the will be named the paper's new editor-in chief. The well-seasoned cast do an excellent job, especially Dana Andrews, who plays prize-winning reporter turned television commentator Edward Mobley, and Thomas Mitchell, who plays fellow reporter and competitor, John Day Griffith. Both Ida Lupino and George Sanders are also excellent. The film's tone is very cynical, as would be expected in the world of film noir. There is an unusual reversal, in which the killer, who is portrayed as a "momma's boy", can actually be seen as more sympathetic than the newspaper's staff, who will do anything to get ahead and capture the prize offered. Actually, the fact that three men in the film would willingly use their girlfriends as "bait" to capture the killer, certainly does not speak well of their own fundamental humanity. Lang displays how an effective film noir can be created without a great deal of stylistic traits, specifically mood lighting or odd camera angles which are usually connected with film noir. Director Lang remains subtly expressionistic in his use of décor. I have always found the film to be a bit too "talky", but within the milieu of the newspaper's setting, the flow is quote natural. Yes, it is a stylistically understated noir, but the wheeling, dealing, and back-stabbing of the competing media players give it an effectively cynical tone, which fits right in with the noir features. The re-mastered dvd print is excellent, and the film is presented in widescreen, 16x9, 2:1 ratio. The running time is 99 minutes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! SMRZ!!

HASH(0x9e6620f0) out of 5 stars A Must See for Lang Fans June 5 2011
By Mr. Grim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
An all star cast is effortlessly handled by Lang who shows a very modern view of cut-throat office life. A joy to watch and very up to date. It would play well in any theater today.

HASH(0x9e6625ac) out of 5 stars "ask mother".....Lipstick serial killer~ 4 STARS~ Feb. 26 2015
By Molly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
PLOT: serial killer has the news crews and police busy~ too busy~

Vincent Price is the heir to a huge NEWS conglomerate on the death of his father. He sets his 3 best men against each other for his own AMUSEMENT to climb up the ladder of power under him. This starts with the BATHTUB murder and the KILLER is the DELIVERY MAN from a PHARMACY. He leaves his calling card......a wall marked "Ask Mother"..in lip stick. NEWS hound and ace reporter (DANA ANDREWS)along with detective (HOWARD DUFF) piece together a "profile" of the killer who hates his mother and women. ADDED fun here is Price's "slutty" trophy wife~ Rhonda Fleming. A fun scene is sexy Fleming in a bikini doing her "exercises" while Price is practicing his golf putts complete with tacky shorts is a visual delight, the LANG Touch. Andrews airs his "profile" of the KILLER and calls him a "mama's boy" on TV. The killer starts to stalk Andrews Fiancé ~ who is NOW the BAIT. Lots of STARS~ George Sanders, John Barrymore Jr., and Ida Lapino. This is a visual gem. Fritz Lang is in fine form here. When the KILLER .."kills' we see face during the crimes and his madness and satisfaction after. The Killer at home with his mother also shows the motive for his hatred which allows us to follow the crime and motives which helps move the story along. FRITZ LANG is one of the BEST. 4 STARS~
