The riot grrrl answer to soulless assembly-line music biopics like Bohemian Rhapsody, Her Smell charts the descent —and potential rebirth — of Becky Something (Elizabeth Moss), the frontwoman of an all-female grunge band in the vein of Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, and L7. As the ’90s come to a close, Becky’s drug abuse and unspooling mental health alienate people in all corners of her life, from her bandmates (Agyness Deyn and Gayle Rankin) to her label owner (Eric Stoltz), mother (Virginia Madsen), husband (Dan Stevens), would-be proteges (Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne, and Dylan Gelula), and a friend whose star has risen higher than her own (Amber Heard). – Dan Caffrey, Consequence of Sound

Reviews

A brave and rewarding punk epic... if the script evokes John Cassavetes, the aesthetic seems more inspired by Gaspar Noé.
