I didn't want to review this one because I didn't want to be mean, but I've decided to try and say something about every movie I see this year.
That being said, this movie sets up so much good stuff and falls short of nearly all of it. A promising neo-noir mystery that feels like a bad Agatha Christie book at the end, the acting (though pretty great in some scenes!) doesn't pull this movie out of its last act nosedive. It's a shame too because the first half really did lay some interesting track about female celebrity and female friendships where Hollywood/social media is involved.
Two stars for all the potential and for the Drive-like cinematography of LA (and !John Cho! as a modern hard-boiled detective).
