If "Out of Blue" is meant sincerely, why is so little care given to psychology or plot? And if it's meant as pastiche, why isn't it more fun?
Part police procedural, part supernatural thriller, part lesson in metaphysics and all neo-noir, Carol Morley's Out of Blue never gels into a convincing whole.
Out of Blue is one of those films you're not sure if you really enjoyed viewing, but you're immensely glad that it exists, cheered to know the film industry still has room for maverick, boundary-smudging work like this.
Morley sustains a vibe of low-key Lynchian weirdness throughout, enough to keep your mind from wandering even as the investigation meanders this way and that.
A flawed film, but a valuable one.
Loosely adapted from Martin Amis' novel Night Train, this is a bold thriller with a big idea at its core, and although it fells short of its aims there's some good stuff along the way.
It's an admirably earnest attempt at the metaphysical where we least expected, but also an unintentionally funny one as well.
Though Out of Blue has ambition, it's not strange enough to continually beguile and doesn't leave its protagonist's discoveries open to interpretation.
Clarkson and the supporting cast and the atmospheric setting are more interesting than the muddled not-as-clever-as-they-think-it-is plot.
The stars never fully align as the interesting threads Morley scatters about come to nothing in a dime-a-dozen ending.
Carol Morley's murder mystery is a mood piece that alternates between naffness and transcendence.
There isn't one shred of emotion during the whole film to help us invest-just yelling and stoicism alternating until naturalism is officially thrown out the window.
