"The tone is Camus in New York, but it's as much a B-movie as an existential statement, with something of a modern comic-book feel."
Allen Baron's chilly 1961 noir BLAST OF SILENCE follows hitman Frank Bruno (played by Baron) as he returns to New York City during Christmastime. Ostensibly in the city to perform a hit, the coldhearted Bruno finds himself unable to focus, instead choosing to lose himself in the winter festivities.
