Hoyle, a girl with a sharp mind and a weakness for bourbon, finds herself on the trail of a reclusive genius. But her work takes a series of unforeseen twists as events around her grow increasingly fragmented... disconnected... surreal. With an ethereal lounge singer and her loyal partner as her only allies, Hoyle is plunged into a dark world of intrigue and earth-shattering cosmological secrets. Haunted by an ever-present shadow whom she is destined to face, Hoyle discovers that the most powerful force in the universe -- the power to bend reality, the power to know the truth -- lies within the depths of the human heart.

Detective lost in the fabric of space-time-unconscious loses us
14 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A movie like this, an independent shoestring budget effort that required a lot of creative effort from those involved, maybe should be left to its creator or creators to evaluate. They should decide what to do next to express themselves in film after having experienced this project. A lot was done and done well with lighting and minimal sets to create a noir atmosphere. It seemed at times to bring back memories of how early TV shows had to operate, but with today's technical equipment so much more can be done to make a film look smooth and professional, and this one shows it.

The story and script are where this film falters at its heart. Add to that the inexperience and/or inability of the lead actress (Kipleigh Brown) to invest her character and part with meaning and you have a film that's quite painful to watch. Her costuming didn't work at all either. Neo-noir is not enough; ersatz noir won't do either. Various theories are not enough. Obscurity is all right if it serves a decent story and doesn't have us constantly asking why each and every character is doing what they're doing when they do it. There has to be some sense to it all.

Chase Masterson comes off better and she sings a nice standard at the beginning, at a very slow tempo that's tough to handle. But she too has problems with those lines handed to her.

Nice try, but no medal. Mr. Kerwin won some awards for this movie. You decide.
