Gasoline Alley Review: A Slick, Minimalist, Neo Noir Film

The film, by director Edward Drake, is Gasoline Alley.

Drake set out to make a neo-noir set in a version of Los Angeles 

about how far men will go when pushed to their limits.

Tattoo artist Jimmy drives a classic Chevelle muscle car and sports rockabilly shirts, smoking continuously. 

Luke Wilson and Bruce Willis are detectives Vargas and Freeman, and like Jimmy, they’re not easy to pin down.

while German actress Irina Antonenko stands out as Star

Jimmy before becoming a victim he’s under suspicion of killing.

Drake chose Willis in spite of being less than the vivacious

Gasoline Alley isn’t a great movie, but it isn’t bad, either.

Gasoline Alley is available now on Hulu.
