"No Clue" by Carl Bessai

This evening we finally made it to Carl's new film "No Clue" (it started last week but we failed to attend in the opening weekend due to other commitments). We had a lot of fun but I'd have to say it was more of a Brent Butt picture, with Butt as both the screenwriter and the star, so the humour usually remained small screen. However, the film had a seductive comic book look with endless details in the production design, location section, and colour palate which kept me interested. Deer heads hanging in Vancouver bars? Would that really happen? Carl used a wide selection of 1940s buildings as the backdrop for the noir-influenced story. The jazz-heavy music was worthy of a soundtrack album, although unfortunately that is something only done for the biggest American pictures these days.
