Alex Ross Perry United States, 2018

HKFanatic's rating of the film Her Smell

Alex Ross Perry's most technically accomplished and alienating film to date. Elizabeth Moss plays such an ego monster, I felt a palpable sense of relief whenever she wasn't onscreen—which, along with the burbling noise soundtrack, effectively puts you in the headspace of the other characters in the film. "Her Smell" also serves as a bittersweet homage to the last time guitar-based music had an impact on the culture.
