Director's filmography: Killer Queen (2019)
Meet Girl (Fatima Maziani), a homicidal woman plagued with madness. She wants to do right but keeps meeting the wrong people, like Boy (director Ramin Fahrenheit), a lovelorn drug dealer who’s all too willing to indulge her criminal urges. Their plot to rob an older couple ends in bloodshed and Girl succumbing to insanity. In the days that follow, her body count only rises ...
An audacious love letter to grindhouse cinema, Killer Queen is a heady cocktail of thrills, lo-fi special effects, and creamy cinematography lensed in gorgeous, grainy Super 8mm - that one Reelworld programmer likened to the films of Jean-Luc Godard. Fahrenheit, a Northern Film School alumnus and a talent to watch, unspools Killer Queen as an exercise in tension and dreamy tones capped off with a synthy score by Norman Orenstein that puts John Carpenter’s best efforts to shame. Even more laudably, the film’s incidentally diverse cast paves the way for future cinema that does not exoticize visible minorities. In Killer Queen, the blood flows freely, spattering perfectly crafted mise en scène. Time shifts and distends. And throughout, Girl reigns supreme.
