Movie Info

An innovative and quirky dark comedy that both honors and deconstructs the conventions of the classic 'who-done-it?' film noir, THE SCENESTERS is about your average down-on-his-luck guy with an unconventional day job as a crime scene cleaner. For years, Charlie Newton (Blaise Miller) has been the butt of jokes from every cocky investigator. What no one realizes, though, is that Charlie has a highly-developed Sherlockian sense of deduction. As a couple of apathetic detectives (Kevin M. Brennan and Monika Jolly) investigate a series of killings in ultra-hip East Los Angeles, Charlie is with them every step of the way, often finding clues that would have otherwise been missed. It isn't long before the crime scene videographers (an out-of-work film director (Todd Berger) and producer (Jeff Grace)) realize that Charlie might be the real story and decide to make a movie about him. Eventually the killer wants his day in the spotlight and begins to make a movie of his own. Charlie must race against time to save the life of the final victim. Unless, of course, Charlie was the killer all along.... The film's soundtrack (and plot) features indie-rock favorites The Airborne Toxic Event, The Cribs, The Sonics, Wallpaper, Le Switch, and many more. -- (C) Official
