Becky Something is a self-destructive punk rockstar who once filled arenas with her female trio “Something She.” Now she plays in smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted band mates, nervous record company utives and rising talents. She struggles with sobriety while trying to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.
Punk rock band leader Becky Something brings out the artistic creativity that leads the band to success and pushes her band members, family and her followers to the limit. People around her look at her with admiration, compassion, fear and contempt. Alex Ross Perry’s sixth feature film Her Smell depicts a portrait of a self-destructive artist who lives in the art world. Becky is a problematic person who disturbs judgement. Is Becky an artistic truth-seeker who is a bless to those around her or a curse? Can you take on "her smell"? Perry’s camera goes through the claustrophobic backstage, dressing room and recording studio, following Becky’s conscious. It is a harmful film that provokes one’s senses clashing with internal enemies and a mature work of displaying Perry’s capability of an artist. [JANG Byungwon]
