Her Smell

Wisconsin Premiere • narrative • USA • 2018 • DCP • 135 MIN

section: American Visions

Elisabeth Moss gives a fearless, tour de force performance as Becky Something, a self-destructive rock star at the height of the grunge era. She's the talented, toxic frontwoman for Something She, a band on the verge of blowing up, so long as Becky doesn’t immolate first. Surrounded on all sides by exes, exploiters, estranged bandmates, hangers-on, and her own young child—and seemingly determined to make enemies of them all—Becky cultivates chaos like a rock ‘n’ roll witch. Her story unfolds over five bravura scenes, capturing key moments in the arc of Becky's career in real time as she combusts and recovers. The best and bravest film yet from three-time collaborators Moss and writer/director Alex Ross Perry maintains a structural control belied by the frenetic antagonism of its star. Her Smell dares to push Becky's exhibitionist delirium towards the breaking point, only to loop back around with a powerful wave of well-earned emotional resonance. "Over and above the furious—and ultimately painfully tender—drama, Perry achieves something of a new, grand version of his own cinematic music. It also, when the time comes, draws time to a stop; two long takes, of Moss singing at home, are among the most exquisite, breath-stopping moments in recent movies" (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). 2019 SXSW Film Festival.
