The writer-director Todd Berger parades his stylistic chops with his self-satisfied, vérité-ish comedy "The Scenesters," a tepid show-business satire.

Likely to be rejected as a labored, smug, and ultimately inert neo-noir crime comedy, a movie far too wrapped in its own cleverness to engage the viewer with anything above rampaging self-awareness.

Not perfect, but a fun and rangy, noir-tinged murder comedy. The Scenesters has in abundance what every independent film yearns for -- intrigue and a cocksure rhythm that doesn't ever feel false.

destined to become a cult classic that actually also deserves to be seen.

Audiences will shrug at the mystery's solution but likely will be eager to see what Berger & Co. do next.

This jumbled satirical mystery is too pleased with itself for its own good.

The film plays like an in-joke home movie of the very folks it means to send up.
