Early in Dario Argento’s first feature film, 1970’s The Bird with the Crystal Plumage , a handsome American writer strolling around Rome at night stumbles upon a murder that is already underway. The writer, played by Tony Musante, rushes to save the red-haired beauty struggling to fight off a shadowy, knife-wielding assailant inside an overly lit art gallery. The writer makes it into the vestibule of the windowed gallery space but can’t open the inner door.
It reads like an offhand joke tossed around at a Metrograph fête : What do you get when you make a film about a spiraling riot grrrl punk rocker played by a celebrated Hollywood actress, fronting a backing band played by models in Day-glo hair ( Cara Delevingne , is that you?), with a soundtrack that includes a Bryan Adams cover and feedback loop, directed by the ever-perplexing Alex Ross Perry ? The punchline would be Her Smell , Perry’s latest feature-length entry that chronicles the steady, bourbon-induced downfall of a grunge powerhouse named Becky Something, the front-woman of Something She, played arrestingly by Elisabeth Moss. Much like Becky’s own attempts to sing onstage without collapsing, the film demands a steady ounce of effort from its viewers.

The LA-based skater-turned-artist first started posting his images on Tumblr back in 2009, quickly gaining popularity due to his keen eye and sharp wit. Hsu’s photographs straddled diaristic impulses with an hysterical combination of high – low content
