Too Late Reviews

May 5, 2016
With "Too Late," Hauck confirms that he's a master of the film medium. What's less convincing is why this film matters.

A stylized blend of classic film noir and New Hollywood pulp, this remarkable debut feature may grate on mainstream viewers with its affected drama and offbeat pacing, but cinephiles will be charmed.

Almost any scene with Hawkes is alive and satisfyingly showy. You feel his absence when he isn't there, though Joanna Cassidy, Crystal Reed and Robert Forster all have their moments.

The puzzle pieces of Hauck's brain-teaser don't always come together perfectly, but there's no denying it's infectious fun.

While it can be frustrating to see some filmmakers dash off copies of other movies, it's deeply enjoyable to find one who so appreciates his inspirations.

The hyperverbal screenplay quickly grows tiresome, from the sub-"Pulp Fiction" prattle of two drug dealers (Dash Mihok and Rider Strong) to one act after another in which desperate women are preyed upon or saved by the men around them.
March 30, 2016
A supremely self-conscious genre exercise in which character and emotional depth don't seem to be on the very meta menu.
March 18, 2016
A strangely involving, idiosyncratic masterwork that echoes the style of such filmmakers as Quentin Tarantino, Robert Altman and even Welcome to L.A.'s Alan Rudolph, while amusingly honoring classic detective movie tropes.

As failures go, it's more interesting than most.

Hawkes is predictably adept as Sampson, a ferociously independent, glamorously grizzled private investigator who seems to have stepped straight out of the '70s.
March 16, 2016
Has its share of ill-conceived moments and amateurish filmmaking, but as a swing-for-the-fences effort with a smattering of genre charm, it fully earns its inevitable destiny as a midnight movie curio.

You've seen a lot of movies like Too Late, and yet you haven't.

Hauck's first feature can be suffocating. This narrative puzzle should be more fun than it is.
