After sold-out runs at TIFF and SXSW, Alex Ross Perry’s virtuosic portrait is of a ‘90s punk star on the path to burn-out. Starring Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale).

Ross Perry's alt-rock, riot grrrl bonanza Her Smell is powered by an electrifying performance from Moss. Channelling the infamous Courtney Love in her role as Becky Something, Moss is a rock star whose band has reached its use-by date. A self-destructive narcissist, Becky's coke-fuelled tirades alienate her bandmates, partner and manager as she hurtles towards impending doom. Rounded out by an all-star cast – Cara Delevingne, Agyness Deyn, Dan Stevens and Amber Heard – Her Smell reunites director Alex Ross Perry with regular collaborators, cinematographer Sean Price Williams (Good Time, SFF 2017) and editor Robert Greene (director of Kate Plays Christine, SFF 2016) for their most robust joint effort to date.

SUN 9 JUN: Grrrl's Punk Riot party at 9.30pm

More loudly stylized than his earlier films, ‘Her Smell’ is a visceral nightmare from the moment it starts; if the script evokes John Cassavetes, the aesthetic seems more inspired by Gaspar Noé.
Indiewire
Elisabeth Moss turns in a five-alarm blaze of a performance as a frontwoman who makes Courtney Love look like Mother Teresa.
