Too Late is a neo-noir drama that tells the story of a private investigator named Sampson (John Hawkes) as he uncovers the dark secrets of Los Angeles. Throughout the movie's non-linear narrative, the protagonist encounters a diverse cast of characters that each add a unique layer to the gritty and complex plot. The supporting cast includes Crystal Reed who plays Dorothy, a troubled and alluring young woman who hires Sampson to find her missing sister. Natalie Zea portrays Veronica, a waitress with a mysterious past who becomes entangled in Sampson's investigation. Dichen Lachman plays Jill, a stripper with a heart of gold, who also gets pulled into the world of dark secrets and lies.

From the opening scene, the movie sets the tone with its stunning cinematography and unique visual style. Filmed entirely on 35mm film, the movie's distinct look captures the seedy underbelly of LA's nightlife scene.

The plot is structured around five separate acts, each filmed in one continuous take, with each act taking place at a different time of day. This non-linear approach to storytelling keeps the audience on their toes, as they are forced to piece together the complex plot.

One of the standout performances is from John Hawkes, who brings a quiet intensity to his portrayal of Sampson. Throughout the movie, he remains calm and collected, despite the dangerous situations he finds himself in.

Crystal Reed's performance as Dorothy is also noteworthy. She brings a vulnerability to the character, making the audience empathize with her struggle to find her missing sister. Natalie Zea's role as Veronica is mysterious and seductive, adding a layer of intrigue to the film. Dichen Lachman's portrayal of Jill is both charming and heartbreaking, making her one of the most memorable characters in the movie.

The soundtrack, composed by Robert Allaire, perfectly captures the mood of the movie. The jazzy and melancholic score adds to the neo-noir feel of the film and complements the stunning visuals.

Too Late is not a movie for everyone; the non-linear narrative structure and the complex plot can be confusing for some viewers. However, for those who are willing to dive into the movie's world, there is a lot to enjoy. The movie's unique style, outstanding performances and engaging plot make it a must-watch for fans of neo-noir and crime dramas.

Too Late is a 2016 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 47 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.7 and a MetaScore of 54.
