Out of Blue [2019]

As well as in years 2018, Karyn Kusama with the Destroyer, which is about police drama, Carol Morley did not want to be outdone by presenting Out of Blue featuring a loud detective woman, Mike Hoolihan, investigating a murder that somehow seemed to be related to her own past.

If Karyn Kusama presents Julia Roberts, then Carol Morley cooperates with beautiful actress Patricia Clarkson to portray detective Mike Hoolihan. Besides Patricia Clarkson, this thriller mystery “Out of Blue” movie also presents Mammie Gummer, James Caan, Jackie Weaver, Aaron Tveit.

Out of Blue movie shows starting March 22, 2019 with a duration of 109 minutes through the distributor of IFC Films.


Synopsis of Out of Blue

Detective Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) was tasked with investigating the death of New Orleans scientist and socialite Jennifer Rockwell (Mamie Gummer), found with her face shot at an observatory. The two main suspects are observatory manager Ian Strammi (Toby Jones) and Jennifer’s girlfriend, college lecturer Duncan Reynolds (Jonathan Majors).

But Hoolihan began to suspect the dead woman’s father, New Orleans nobleman Colonel Tom Rockwell (James Caan), might have a relationship with the death of his daughter.


My Review of Out of Blue

The film was adapted from Martin Amis’s “Night Train” novel, an allusion to police procedures, but Morley blunted the insinuations in such a way that instead of making fun of detective films, it only resembled the example of a cliche ridden from the film.

Hoolihan is the stereotypical main police film, alcoholic drunkard, and the twist here is that his drunkenness has erased all of his life’s memories before joining the police academy.

When the plot continued, it became clear that Hoolihan had a personal connection with the case she was investigating, if only he could remember his lost memory. But when the revelation is finally made in the laughable Out of Blue climax, you will find yourself wondering why Hoolihan doesn’t just put its name on Google.
