Smelly and bad punk portrait

Her smell
Regissør: Alex Ross Perry
(USA)

STAR SLOT: Even if you have never liked punk, you should still get this tender and painfully revealing epic from a rough girl band environment from the 90's USA.

With Her smell Alex Ross Perry challenges and stretches the limit of how disgusting an artist portrait can be. The front character in the band Something She, Becky (Elizabeth Moss), chops wild and damn violent around him. Her path from the stellar to the downfall is inevitable and tough, and terribly painful for anyone who comes near her. Elizabeth Moss, known from among other things the TV series The Handmaid's Tale, Becky gestures so you feel the sweaty anguish in her hands and the splashes of her erratic and raw mental illness. The movie uses rock star stereotypes in the crowd but at the same time quickly creeps under the skin.

Brutal and evil

Moss is surprisingly compelling in the role of violent and attention-seeking punk rock diva. With Moss' stellar status as an interpreter of complex and empathetic women's roles, I first doubted if she could manage to be so hideously brutal and evil.

The film challenges the conventions – not only in how horrible the main character can be, but also in choices. . .
