Bloodshot – a thriller by Douglas Post

Bloodshot – a thriller by Douglas Post

An ex-detective, thrown out of the force on account of his alcoholism, has been making half a living as a photographer; but the magazine which paid him has gone out of business.

Bloodshot is a pastiche British film noir thriller set in seedy London in 1957.

He is contemplating suicide when he gets a commission to stalk and photograph a black woman.

He has hardly begun the job before she is raped and murdered. There are three suspects.

The performance, with a Leica in one hand and a bottle of gin in the other, is clever and versatile.

The script is by Douglas Post. The director is Patrick Sandford.
