Big Muddy is set in the present, but it doesn't have to be. The prairie-noir premise is pretty timeless.

It's a quintessentially Canadian idea mixed in with the material Moneo borrows from various hard-boiled film noirs and sun-dappled westerns.

Big Muddy often looks darkly sublime but the script, expanded by Moneo from his 2011 short, isn't quite up to the task.

It dawdles and meanders a little too much in the getting there, but at least once Martha and Stan are in the same house, Big Muddy starts livening up its beat-up setting.

Jefferson Moneo, tackling his first feature, has a good handle on storytelling economy, and gives his unique setting ample time to shine.

A muddle, with a badly miscast femme fatale

Atmospheric and absorbing, this well-crafted whodunit is rather reminiscent of Red Rock West.
