They cite the movie as an important example of docu-noir, a hybrid of the documentary and film noir. Silver and Ursini point out all the real locations used in the movie and how they provide a level of realism that you canít get with sets. They also point out that Kiss of Death is one of the few noirs narrated by a woman and they do an excellent job analyzing the filmís themes and style.
