Article Excerpt:

byChris Feil

It's not incorrect to call Alex Ross Perry'sHer Smella musical,it just feels like a simple categorization doesn't contain all of the levels that the film operates on.It's also King Lear on downstairs cocaine,a Cassavettes character study,and an epic saga of female friendship.And of course it's also a subtle period piece,unfolding over the years when Spin magazine reigned supreme,bad behavior was a natural extension of star persona,and grunge and punk excesses converged into a million different stylistic offshoots.

But music remains the film's connective tissue,whether it is pushed to the background by the impossible behavior of Elisabeth Moss's demonic antihero Becky Something or returns because of her genius.What makes it all work is that the music feels authentic both to the period and the specific,fractious aesthetic Perry is going for.
