Critic Reviews for Out of Blue
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.
But what does it all mean? Amis didn't come up with any answers in his novel, and neither does Morley in this abstract noir film that not even the usually excellent Clarkson can save.
