"Eberle’s models are moody crime pictures like the films of Jean-Pierre Melville, which means a lot of the drama is internal — played out between men and women who speak in code, and barely raise their voices above a whisper."

Backstage's Melinda Loewenstein discusses the casting and directing process with Sole Proprietor director Dan Eberle.
“You have to be open to the possibility that there’s something out there much better than what you think you’re looking for,” he says, noting that just because he thinks he’s looking for a certain thing, there’s no upside to rejecting someone else’s take if it’s better.

Overall, I found Cut to Black to be an exceptional film. Even as it plays with conventions we all know, thus lending a predictability to many a narrative twist and turn, it doesn’t matter, because it does such a great job in its presentation. Its familiar elements are rendered in noteworthy fashion, and the film stands as a strong example of the noir and mystery genres it plays in.

“Familiar film-noir tropes are lovingly rehashed to good effect in Dan Eberle’s gritty drama about a disgraced former cop turned private investigator who seeks moral redemption in a sordid case.”

“As in so many noirs, the narrative complexity grows and grows—but, most likely, so will the viewer’s appreciation, especially of Eberle’s evident love of the films that inspired him.”

A summary of this year’s theme from the BFF site:
Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) themed the 2013 edition:
MAGNETIC is a study on all those invisible forces that bring people together or push them apart. It is also our personal invitation to read between the lines while questioning the motives behind. MAGNETIC will be a showcase of smart, multi-layered, deceiving, manipulative, yet unseen films coming from all continents in search of a Brooklyn breakthrough.
Cut to Black will screen alongside films Hairbrained (with Brendan Frasier and Parker Posey), and Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes (with Jessica Biel and Alfred Molina).
