Después de algún tiempo retirado, el asesino profesional Frankie Bono vuelve a Nueva York para hacer otro trabajo: asesinar a un mafioso de poca monta. A pesar de sus intentos de pasar desapercibido mientras persigue a su víctima, Bono es reconocido por un antiguo compañero de orfanato. Pero no será el único error que cometa... (FA)
Un noir neoyorquino tardío (1961) y más clase "C" que "B". Solo recomendado para fanáticos del género.

Swift, brutal, and black-hearted, Allen Baron's New York City noir Blast of Silence is a sensational surprise. This low-budget, carefully crafted portrait of a hit man on assignment in Manhattan during Christmastime follows its stripped-down narrative with mechanical precision, yet also with an eye and ear for the oddball idiosyncrasies of urban living and the imposing beauty of the city. At once visually ragged and artfully composed, and featuring rough, poetic narration performed by Lionel Stander, Blast of Silence is a stylish triumph.  ~~> Criterion blurb
This is a very dark, low-budget crime film which was unjustly neglected until its "discovery" during the film noir revival of the early '90s. Making brilliant use of authentically grimy New York locations, the film tells the story of a hate-filled hitman who comes to the city to murder a gangster on Christmas Eve. Lionel Stander's narration is almost impossibly hard-boiled, making the film an odd blend of grit and camp, but absorbing nonetheless. ~~> Robert Firsching
