New High for Moss
13 November 2018 | by moschelbSee all my reviews

Her Smell was an amazing two-hour glimpse into the double-edge of glamour in the world of rock, and a huge step forward for Alex Ross Perry's burgeoning career. Elizabeth Moss and an ensemble cast perfectly enhance the decently scripted film with stellar performances from all its cast members. Specifically, Ms. Moss has reached a new career pinnacle, with her portrayal of the complex and troubled Becky Something. Dan Stevens also has a standout supporting performance, as Danny. There are some sappy moments in the film, but Moss' performance carries the film to its end. Sean Price Williams contributes some impressive skills as cinematographer, further solidifying his career, since his adept work in, "Good Time," from 2017.
