April 12, 2018
Gemini feels like the first draft of a movie that could have been developed into something more resonant.
April 6, 2018
Although rife with wry nods to familiar tropes and meta-commentary on the making of mysteries, Gemini is not so much an ironic perversion of the genre as a woozy, Instagram-y evocation.
April 6, 2018
The word "beguiling" came to mind throughout.
April 6, 2018
Although it has a modern visual style and a mise en scne more in tune with The Neon Demon and Mulholland Drive, Aaron Katz's very enjoyable Gemini is one of the most laid-back Los Angeles mystery films since Robert Altman's The Big Goodbye.
April 5, 2018
Writer/director Aaron Katz's Gemini is an engaging modern noir, until it completely falls apart with the revelation of its central mystery.
April 5, 2018
A slow - and I mean ssslllooowww - murder mystery...
April 5, 2018
Kirke, so wonderful in "Mistress America," and Cho, of the underappreciated "Columbus," are endlessly fascinating to watch, but the gossamer-thin material underserves them.
April 5, 2018
It starts suggestively and enigmatically, then straightens-and flattens-everything out, including the emotional and moral landscape of its characters.
April 5, 2018
[Aaron] Katz's longtime cinematographer Andrew Reed renders the L.A. nightscape in forbidding blues, purples, and shades of crimson that visually, at least, recall early Italian maestros Bava and Argento.
April 5, 2018
[Kirke] possesses an endearing, thoroughly non-actressy quality. She feels completely real and unrehearsed, like she's saying the lines for the first time.
April 5, 2018
It is among the emptiest movies I've ever seen, beginning with a production design filled with sets in roomy designer houses with no personality whatsoever (and that's probably the point).
April 5, 2018
Kirke, and her character, make an impression.
April 4, 2018
With it's social commentary and star-making turn from Lola Kirke, Gemini makes for a fresh take on the murder mystery.
April 3, 2018
[Writer/director Aaron Katz] manages to flip the script by casting women in action-packed roles traditionally reserved for men in this genre, while delivering a satisfying twist that makes Gemini one of the must-see films of the season.
March 31, 2018
It's a variation on a formula laced with a hipster-ish vibe that keeps undercutting itself with bitterness and bemused dread: Forget it, Jake, it's Silverlake.
March 30, 2018
Although the resulting mystery is less intriguing than the unsettling atmosphere that surrounds it, the screenplay probes the aftermath of tragedy in fresh ways.
March 30, 2018
Gemini is a shimmering puzzler that begins with an act of Land Ho!-esque palling-around before warping into an unlikely detective story in the Cold Weather vein.
March 30, 2018
There's a ghostly aura over Katz's L.A., even in broad daylight; the city feels thick with the possibility of double lives.
March 30, 2018
Gemini is cut from neo-noir cloth, following in the footsteps of some of the best in the genre.
March 30, 2018
There is no doubt that the film is more than just a monochromatic Pinterest mood board. And yet, it doesn't really push things to the next level, either.
