Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.08.18] thriller mystery noir western

Neo-noir meets Spaghetti Western in Pickings, a film about a single mother and local bar owner who spent years trying to escape her past until mobsters came after her family.

Written and directed by Usher Morgan, Pickings will be released nationwide via VOD iTunes on August 3rd from Dark Passage Films.

Pickings is filled with the classic film noir elements—grim voiceovers, evocative flashbacks, a moody score and an unforgettable femme fatale—combined with the dazzling neon-dipped photography, startling violence and graphic novel-styled visuals of modern cinema. It immediately evokes the films of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, even as it stands on its own as an exciting new exercise stylized cinematic sound and vision.

PICKINGS, Morgan’s first feature, was filmed in and around New York City in 2016 on a budget of approximately $350,000.

Recommended Release: Dead Man
