Too Late is an independent film written and directed by Dennis Hauck. This is a film noir that tells the story about a private investigator in LA, Sampson (Oscar nominee John Hawkes) face his own past in an investigation into a missing woman.
Here is the official synopsis of the film: Private investigator Mel Sampson (Academy Award nominee John Hawkes) is tasked with tracking down the whereabouts of a missing woman from his own past.
With this familiar setup, TOO LATE takes the spine of the classic private eye genre and tears it to pieces, weaving it back together into a tapestry of southern California
and the menagerie of eccentric personalities and lost souls who inhabit it. From the desolate, overgrown Radio Hill to the ritzy penthouse of The Beverly Hilton,
the film presents a sprawling view of Los Angeles that ranges from the undiscovered to the iconic.
Ultimately, TOO LATE tells the story of a missing woman, but paints the portrait of a lost man.
What should be noted is director Dennis Hauck unique style in filming. The film was shot in 35mm Techniscope in 5 X 22 minutes shots. It is best suited to be seen in a cinema for that reason. Initial release of the film set for March 18th. Check out the trailer below.
