No Sudden Move

No Sudden Move

Very twisty, and a rewatch would probably help connect the dots between all the players on the board. And yet—it doesn’t really matter. There’s a bleak fatalism throughout, as you get with most noir-ish material, but also shots of absurd humor. Nice to see Brendan Fraser onscreen again.

The look of the movie is particularly interesting: lots of wide-angle shots that aren’t static, so at times it feels like the characters are moving through a frame that’s melting/solidifying around them.
