The Naked City ... ...boasts, we are told, eight million stories.Here we get three of them.Frankly the attraction for me was Isabelle Huppert, the finest French actress currently working, who is incapable of turning in a bad performance even when the script and direction push her to the limits. Actually this entry is not half so bad as some of the stuff she has, for reasons best known to herself, deigned to appear in.There's not a great deal, if anything, that's new and or unique about lonliness, isolation and feeling extremes of these conditions when in the midst of a large city teeming with humanity so it is not surprising that this movie does not break any new ground.If you have a penchant for exploring the human condition by peering down the business end of a microscope focussed on three disparate individuals and don't mind spending two hours doing so then check this one out, if you're curious to see how much Huppert's daughter resembles her physically - a lot - then still check it out.Either way you shouldn't be too disappointed. 6/10
