Understand, this is not your typical Hollywood fare.

There is no formulaic storyline or punchy tidy ending with a tacked on denouement. This is film-making at its finest level. A stunning and gorgeous take on the Elizabeth Short story that is more like a visual poem than the usual derivative narratives. The story is one of the most unique and original I've seen in quite some time.

The cast is peppered with cameos from all manner of celebrities including musicians, models, artists and directors.

The cast is lovely, the atmosphere writhes and the soundtrack is an integral part of the tale rather than a distraction.

Did I mention the performance by the stunning Abby Travis?

Ramzi Abed makes the world a happier place.
