“A stylish film noir tribute to the hard-boiled detective flicks of the 1940s… A slick little film that could well be the stepping stone to a feature film deal.”
– T.S. Warren, Ottawa Xpress

“Stylish… brilliant… the whole presentation was very fine.”
– Jay Stone, The Ottawa Citizen

“Keith Davidson is not going to be the next big thing – he is the next big thing.”
– Sanjay Mohanta, CORE Magazine

“The film ends with a nifty twist, and the credit sequence is a hoot – something that’s rare in a low-budget short.”
– Catharine Tunnacliffe, Eye Film

“A send-up of hard-boiled detective stories, Charlie Noir contains great lines like “A dame like that could suck the paint off a cigar-store Indian.” A great twist at the end.”
