Aro Recommended Missing Person, The


USA 2009, 95 minutes
Dir. Noah Buschel
Genres: Drama / Film Noir


Aroview: A strange hybrid of neo-noir gestures and the contemporary human condition, with dough-faced Michael Shannon (perfect as a Bogart stand in) playing an anachronistically-styled private eye hired to shadow a man whose background, it turns out, has something to do with 9/11.

While it never quite finds the right balance between serious introspection and gumshoe detective tropes, Shannon is a highly watchable character actor who picks the film up, even when it drags its heels in murky pastiche.
