  • SXSW Film Review: 'Wild Canaries'

    Classic mystery conventions have provided fertile creative ground for any number of young American filmmakers in recent years, as evidenced by Rian Johnson's "Brick," Aaron Katz's "Cold Weather" and now Lawrence Michael Levine's "Wild Canaries." Starring Levine and Sophia Takal (his wife and regular collaborator) as a sort of hipster Nick and Nora Charles investigating the shady goings-on around their Brooklyn apartment building, this craftily structured yet playfully loose-limbed detective yarn provides a canny narrative template for another of the writer-director's low-budget studies of relational turmoil (following 2011′s "Gabi on the Roof in July"), its occasional descent into shrill bickering largely offset by the filmmakers' palpable delight in their choice of material. Far too eventful, plot-driven and frankly fun to be classified as mumblecore, "Canaries" can only build on Levine's audience; it could catch on with savvy indie filmgoers, particularly those with an affection for the genre being saluted.
