I'm Here For Whatever This Is

Writer/director Nicholas Winding Rehn's new film, THE NEON DEMON, looks almost spectacular. That is to say, the cinematography looks luscious, the premise is as equally intriguing as it is mystifying, but...Elle Fanning is carrying it. And, well, she's typically excruciatingly boring to watch.

I don't want to pick favorites, but let's just say that her sister Dakota is a far more engrossing actress. But maybe Elle is looking to prove her talent to naysayers like myself. And if that's the case, kudos. But let's hope it pays off. Rehn's work can be a bit obtuse for unseasoned actresses. THE NEON DEMON looks no different from his typical fare. Synopsis:

When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.

The film also stars Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, and Christina Hendricks. Watch the trailer:

THE NEON DEMON is slated to hit theaters in June.

Hard not to be interested in this, looks pretty impressive.
