Cut to Black
CUT TO BLACK is the story of disgraced former NYPD detective Bill Ivers. Ivers is on a self-destructive path, plagued by debt, struggling with alcoholism, and carrying on a risky affair with his landlord's wife. Presented with a lucrative offer, Ivers agrees to help his former friend and mentor, John Lord, in a bid to reconcile with his estranged daughter Jessica, by getting rid of a petty stalker. To do so, Ivers must enter Jessica's nocturnal world, The Confessional, the club where she works as a stripper, and contend with her suspicious boyfriend and his disreputable colleagues. Ivers uncovers a tangled web of corruption and deceit that threatens more than one life, but also offers the chance for true redemption. Shot in lavish black-and-white tones, CUT TO BLACK is a gorgeous cinematic tribute to classic noir, set against stark, gritty urban modernity. Nobody gets away clean in this gripping story of love, loyalty, and sacrifice.
