Great Film Noir & Great Indie: One to watch!
21 January 2014 | by rob-burrows1-325-819120See all my reviews

Being a bit of a fan of the film noir genre with a comedy twist I was intrigued to come across this movie. OK, it has received what one may say could be more than it's fair share of awards, but does that really mean it is any good? I was pleasantly surprised to find that this one was a real gem with the all the stylishness, sexual connotation and cynical expression that the genre requires. Yes the acting was good and the quality otherwise was good, however, this went that bit further. It was really funny and engaged me from the outset. It was one of those films that makes the clock go unnaturally fast (not that I was checking it mind). One aspect that impressed me was that this was a brave creation and a challenge to the 'lets pander to the current trend' big studio type of output. It epitomised what independent film is about: Originality, creativity and risk-taking. I think it has found a nice and I hope that it gets the exposure that it so rightly deserves.
