Nobody Can Cool takes a simple concept and uses it to great effect. An independent film in every sense, it is evidence that you do not need big budget dollars to create unnerving tension and edge of your seat excitement. For those looking for an effective modern twist on old school noir you will find it with Nobody Can Cool.
The story follows Susan (Catherine Annette) and David (David Atlas) a young couple who are looking to have a weekend getaway out in the country. They soon find their friend’s home they thought would be vacated is currently being used by some suspicious characters. The question becomes are these strange occupiers just the product or a miscommunication or are their plans far more sinister.
David and Susan come across as the couple you never want to hang out with. Constantly bickering they remind you of those couples that make you wonder why they are ever together. Catherine Annette’s and David Atlas’s banter feels uncomfortably real. We first meet them shortly after a family wedding that provided nothing but things to argue about. As we travel traverse the country roads it becomes very apparent what type of people we are working with.
When they surpassingly walk in on Len (Nick Principe) and Gigi (Nikki Bohm) during a rather intimate moment the mood of the film quickly changes. Thankfully it does not take long to learn we are in a dire situation. Len and Gigi have plenty to hide and will do whatever they need to in order to protect their secrets.
Often with a story of this nature the mystery can be prolonged. Trying to play with your preconceived notions just to get to the outcome you expected from the get go. Here it becomes apparent quickly that Len and Gigi are not to be trusted, and it is with that knowledge director Dpyx finds clever ways to build true suspense.
