EppsNet at the Movies: Man From Reno


You probably haven’t seen this. Or heard of it. It was funded by a Kickstarter campaign, released on iTunes, then later on Netflix.

The synopsis should note that it’s a neo-noir. Some of the marketing materials make it look like a Murder, She Wrote crime caper. It isn’t. It’s dark.

I just sat staring at the screen for several minutes after it ended.

Rating: 4-stars
