No aesthetic pleasures, however, could mask the wimpiness of the denouement's reliance on an old Agatha Christie trick, delivered to the disappointed viewer with zero emotional payoff.

Gemini's utilization of professional (and in this case, underrated) actresses works to his advantage; the talented pair achieve an affinity sweet and enigmatic, cresting with the arch of an eyebrow or a longing gaze.

GEMINI isn't going to be easily categorized, but it puts a premium on its storytelling while still remaining a chin-stroking puzzle.
November 14, 2018
a merger of Cold Weather's mumblenoir and LA neo-noir: a light and low-key affair led by a laid-back amateur sleuth who, despite repeated assertions about her powers of recall, is remarkably slow to work out whodunnit.
November 13, 2018
Gemini is a cool, often funny, and well-crafted Hollywood mystery poking a little fun at the industry that they certainly had to work within in order to create the movie itself.
October 22, 2018
A somewhat engaging but lightweight low-budget crime thriller shooting for the status of neo-noir.
October 18, 2018
Kravitz and Kirke perform well, but John Cho seems underused in his role and his character could have had the potential to generate more tension as the cops close in. Worth a watch though.
October 11, 2018
Occasionally humorous, consistently quirky, and genuinely filled with tension, there's a lot to like here.
August 20, 2018
Sleek and captivating, Gemini navigates the emotional traps imbedded in a celebrity culture fueled by acts of theatrical desperation.
August 8, 2018
The film's sense of tension is real, and built on realistic moments.
August 6, 2018
All that to say, Gemini is a sensational visual and audible experience. Aaron Katz captures a pulsating and stylized version of Los Angeles that is not typically seen in feature films...
April 20, 2018
Witty, well-acted and knowing noir about a murder in LaLa Land.
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
[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
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.
