Why Watch? The fine folks at Finite Films effectively have an open invitation to this column. So far, they’ve managed to craft a frightening horror film, a quirky romantic comedy, and with Imperfect, they’ve proven that they’ll excel no matter the genre (and no matter the constraints put on them by their fans).
The constraints this time included:
• A supernatural being/non-human must masquerade as a human. — Dan B.
• One of the characters doesn’t speak English. — Ana
• A character must say the line “Please stop shooting me.” — Dan B.
• A character must say the line “I don’t know where, I don’t know when, I don’t know how, and I don’t know why. Well, I know where…” — Daniel C.
• Plot must revolve around the murder of a character we never know. — MD
• The main character never speaks a line of dialogue. — Freddie A.
• Must be in the style of a 40′s noir. — Olivia
They’ve woven those limitations into a text-book noir with a heartbeat of its own – something that captures the ugly of the world in gorgeous, impressionistic detail. Plus, it quietly slips in a few sci-fi elements that would make Ralph Meeker proud. Maybe it wouldn’t make a list of the top films noir, but hot damn if it isn’t excellent work.
