Review: Sweet Revenge

Posted By admin on July 17, 2015 4:44pm

In a seamless combination of film noir and candy-coated puns, "Sweet Revenge" delivers a very funny, dramatic tale of a mysterious series of murders and the cynical detective tasked to unravel the mystery. In the city of Can Diego, Detective Toby LaRone struggles to connect the killings in the recent spree as the city is pushed further and further into darkness. As he slowly puts the pieces together, he begins to realize just how obvious the answer was, but he quickly finds out he is too late. The animations are very well done and the film noir style is a very funny contrast to the relentless stream of puns. The writing is spot on, with very few missed opportunities to slip in a candy-based joke, and the dead-pan narration of the detective is quite funny. "Sweet Revenge" is an official selection of the New York City Independent Film Festival and will be shown during the festival's run from October 12-18, 2015.
