Her Smell ★★★★½

An uncomfortable portrait of a rock star in crisis that is very rewarding if you stick with it. With a fantastic performance by Elisabeth Moss and uncompromising direction from Alex Ross Perry, it's a film that could tread familiar ground, but manages to do something a bit different. With sound design that is unsettling and disorienting, it's a subjective view at times inside the solitary world of someone who doesn't appreciate those around her. Familiar territory for Perry whose other films are about people who are not great at empathy. Shot gorgeously on 35mm film and with a strong supporting cast and a solid structure that takes the audience on a challenging and realistic journey, it's a film that is sticking with me and yet another great addition to the impressive body of work from Elisabeth Moss.
