The freshest post-modern take on classic noir since Brick, it's impressive to see writer-director-editor Aaron Katz make huge strides of cinematic assuredness and polish with each new project.
An LA movie that feels uniquely its own, with a wide breadth of neighborhoods and lavish locations that give scale and specificity to the mystery; all of their sunshine suffused in 'blue mood' nautical light, with oceanic colors extended through everything from costume design to kitchen decor. Visually, this movie is as arresting as Lola Kirke and her beautiful bangs.
Keegan DeWitt's score also bangs, with jazzy, crestfallen revelations, pared back suspense on piano and strings and pulsing electronica capturing the dark allure of neon pink Los Angeles nights. It's his best yet and that's really saying something when you look at his cooler than thou filmography. Can't wait to hear what he has in store with Her Smell and Bisbee '17.
