I’m still incredibly wet behind the ears when it comes to the fascinating world of cinematic noir, and I still have so much to learn about the genre. Regardless of my self-proclaimed ignorance on the subject, I know what I like, and I really like the cryptically stylish new teaser for writer/director Suki Singh’s forthcoming noir “Emulsion”. The story itself may sound pedestrian — a man searches endlessly for his missing wife — but Singh’s execution of the material certainly sets the film apart from other like-minded endeavors. I’m getting a strong David Lynch meets Christopher Nolan vibe from the embedded trailer, though that just might be me jumping to conclusions based on a clip that’s barely a minute long. Instead of pontificating further, I’ll let you be the judge.
Thanks to Quiet Earth for showing me the way.
