A refreshing and complex story
18 April 2014 | by simmonsdaryl39See all my reviews

Indie movies are becoming more complex with deep subjects that trend to overtake the campy Hollywood simplistic "lowest common denominator" approach. A Dark Matter is one of these films. It's obvious every action and line is important to telling the story. The story, which questions our perception. In the hero's case, Angus' perception revolves around his everyday life relationships and his art work; painting. This is where the complexity begins. You have to watch carefully and upon a second viewing, I picked up so much more.

A Dark Matter delves into the mind of the artist. The classic double, black widow, murder and confusion set a film noir mystery that keeps us guessing until the end. The pay off isn't what you discover though, but the journey itself.

I really enjoyed this movie, although I don't' think it's for everyone – lowest common denominator it isn't as it still creeps into my mind.
