Gemini feels like the first draft of a movie that could have been developed into something more resonant.

The word "beguiling" came to mind throughout.

Kirke, so wonderful in "Mistress America," and Cho, of the underappreciated "Columbus," are endlessly fascinating to watch, but the gossamer-thin material underserves them.

[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).
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
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
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.
March 30, 2018
Gemini is a decent little thriller that's been spruced up by a very impressive Instagram filter.
March 29, 2018
What does it mean when a movie's setting is so rapturously rendered that its characters, its plot and even the merest whiff of suspense evaporates into a haze? In the case of Gemini, that's not entirely a bad thing.

A moody noir pop-up, "Gemini" is writer/director Aaron Katz's alluring, self-reflexive Los Angeles-set mystery that also doubles as a pictorial mash note to the city's gleaming spaces and dreaming inhabitants.
March 29, 2018
A pleasurably drifty, low-wattage mystery ...
March 28, 2018
Kirke is always watchable and a good presence on screen, but so much about "Gemini" is so contrived that here she looks a little lost in the story at times.
March 28, 2018
It's a delicious appetizer but you'll crave more.
March 27, 2018
As visually appealing as much of Gemini is, it wouldn't work nearly so well without Lola Kirke playing Jill.
March 26, 2018
A heavily atmospheric neo-noir that starts with real promise but eventually crumbles into silliness.
March 26, 2018
The cracking of the mystery, at the conclusion of "Gemini," is daft and unsatisfying ...
June 15, 2017
An uncanny, exquisite synthesis of naturalism and genre, the film is a heady cocktail of high style and lo-fi whose sum effect is irresistible.

There's smart commentary about fame, gender and celebrity in "Gemini," but Katz builds tension so brilliantly that it's hard to watch it and think about anything other than the mystery at hand.
