A stranger in the increasingly strange city of San Francisco, Japanese crime novelist Aki is unsure of precisely what role she has to play in a real-life murder mystery involving ambiguous MacGuffins and amorphous identities. Unfolding in lonely places such as bookshops and hotel bars, Dave Boyle's moody thriller uncovers exhilarating new takes on genre conventions. Consequently, it's an alluring l'homme fatal who supplies Aki with the breadcrumb trail of clues that entices her into a labyrinthine plot of sinister dealings. In turn, the aging sheriff (veteran character actor Pepe Serna, fantastic in a rare leading role), who should rightfully be riding to her rescue, proves to be equally out of his depth. The game is afoot, the chase is exhilarating and the stakes are perilously high in this inspired neo-noir.

Man from Reno movie full length review - Film Noir At It's Best!

Just finished watching "Man From Reno." I first learned about the "Man From Reno" from Kickstarter when I choose to become a supporter of the movie back in August 2013.

Director/Writer Dave Boyle promised supporters a gripping film noir movie about a Japanese crime writer and a small town sheriff whose paths crossed when they are independently, but unknowingly investigating two strange disapperances miles apart from each other. Aki Akahori is a highly successful mystery writer in Japan who skips out on her latest publicity tour for her newest novel because she feels like a fraud. Aki flees to San Francisco where she vists some of her old friends, where hints of her past are revealed. Her disapperance is causing a media sensation back in Japan, and is boosting sales of all her novels. Aki does contemplate committing suicide by slitting her wrists in the bathtub; but fate intervenes. Meanwhile Sheriff Paul is trying to locate the whereabouts of "The Running Man" - the man he accidentally hit with his car on a foggy night and who later fled from the hospital after stealing a change of clothes. Aki meanwhile meets a handsome stranger and has a one-night affair with him. He disappears the next morning, leaving behind only a suitcase with clothes and a head of lettuce. Aki tries her best to track him down Aki's and Paul's paths cross when both realize that they are looking for the same man and Paul tracks her down to her hotel. Dave Boyle has filmed a love letter to the gritty film noir movies of the 1930s and 1940s with "Man From Reno." "Man From Reno" is an intense and absorbing movie that has unexpected twists and turns; with a payoff that is chilling when you realize how easy it would be easy to commit the "real" crime. "Man From Reno" is not, sadly available on DVD yet - I got my DVD in advance because I was a Kickstarter supporter of the movie. If you are a lover of film noir, I STRONGLY urge you to see "Man From Reno" on the big screen if it plays in your area. STRONGLY AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! FIVE STARS!
