Knives & Skin is a weird and wonderful contemporary noir presenting a strange, spooky and surrealist take on Americana and small-town eccentricities. In the aftermath of the disappearance of a local teen, the community deals with her loss in progressively bizarre and curious ways. With clear nods to Lynchian macabre, their coping mechanisms manifest in an increasingly absurdist manner as the mystery unravels. In this highly constructed world, every detail is intricately composed and every oddity savoured. A truly compelling feature, which revels in its own idiosyncrasies, this is cinema at its most uncompromising and distinctive. RG
