Overview

Writer/director James Kerwin infuses Raymond Chandler-influenced noir with a metaphysical twist by tracing the story of a female detective who's tough enough to take on even Philip Marlowe in this monochromatic mystery designed to challenge the viewer's very perception of reality. Hoyle (Kipleigh Brown) is a hard-drinking detective whose taste for bourbon betrays her razor-sharp sleuthing skills. Set out on the trail of a reclusive genius (John Newton), however, Hoyle soon finds her life becoming increasingly fragmented and surreal. The only people that Hoyle can trust as she begins to uncover a series of mind-bending cosmological secrets are her loyal partner (Mik Scriba) and a scintillating lounge singer (Chase Masterson). But wherever Hoyle goes, she is shadowed by a mysterious figure (Peter Mayhew) whom she is soon destined to meet, and who may just possess the power to bend reality. In a world of black and white, Hoyle is about to take a bizarre journey into the divine gradients of grey invisible to the naked eye.

Kerwin's Yesterday Was A Lie is a bold, imaginative film that challenges the viewer intellectually while winking at noir of the past. Kayleigh Brown plays Hoyle, a hardened PI looking for a notebook while trying to understand why. Chase Masterson plays an mysterious Singer who speaks in riddles but holds a key to everything. This a film hard to explain without hinting at what is going on. It is also hard to explain. That said YWAL is a masterpiece. It embraces B/W and Noir with a golden touch. Every line of dialogue is wonderful and the subtle humor is laced throughout. Kerwin has created something special that needs to be seen many times and by many people. I do think it makes Donnie Darko seem like child's play. Revel in this mystery and love it!
