USA, 2024, 91 minutes, DCP

In this absurdist homage to 90’s basic cable TV thrillers, two hot INTERPOL agents uncover an international, interspecies mystery.

The films of Lev Kalman and Whitney Horn provide a heady combination of high and lowbrow pleasures: their idiosyncratic blend of arch humor, bespoke production design and 16mm cinematography remains singular in the realm of contemporary arthouse cinema. In this sexy, consistently inventive detective-serial romp, Interpol agents No and Chase (Esther Garrel and Alex Zhang Hungtai) look to uncover a conspiracy involving coral and murder,  but little is solved, amid their encounters with a promiscuous scientist, a pair of fitness-obsessed interns and an invisible colleague with a vindictive streak.
