No Sudden Move (2021)

This is a modern Film Noir gem.  The director,  Steven Soderbergh,  put together with his writer Ed Solomon, what I consider is gonna become a modern day Noir Classic.   The film features every classic noir element.   Based in 1950's Detroit, you have the cars, gangsters, a MacGuffin, SUPERB layered plot, female fatale,  on location filming, I mean everything. This is NOT a Neo Noir. The FANTASTIC casting includes Don Cheadle and Benicio Del Toro as the two main protaganists, but thats just for starters.  The cinematography,  sets,  and musical scoring are very well done also. Going back to the plot. Its so layered that the film becomes VERY rewatchable. You will NOT get everything on first viewing. I resigned myself a quarter of the way in to just sit back and enjoy the film on the surface. Lastly, the film is loosely based on real events. One of the fallouts of the recent movie industry has become a good thing. Films that normally go straight to theatre, are now becoming available through streaming services. This has resulted in films like this one that can get past you if you are not paying attention. Its a must watch for Film Noir fans.  9 out of 10.

Looks good. I don't have HBOMAX, though, so I guess I won't be seeing it for a while.

Looks good. I don't have HBOMAX, though, so I guess I won't be seeing it for a while.

I play with the free trials.  I was able to see it for $5.99 through a Hulu trail.   You sign up for Hulu and add the 7 day free trail for HBO Max.  You can cancel before the 7 days are up.  Its a very good way of testing HBO Max.   https://www.hulu.com/hbomax   

IF you go do it:

1. Sign up on your computer at the link above. Make sure the HBO Max offer is included.  The fee should be $5.99 total.
2. download the Hulu app on the service you intend to view it. ( roku, fire stick, etc.)
3. sign into the Hulu app to make sure its working using the login credentials you used to sign up.
4. go to HBO MAX at this link. https://play.hbomax.com/page/urn:hbo:page:home   click sign in. Then click sign in with a provider.  Click on Hulu.  Enter the Hulu login credentials you used with Hulu.
5.  download the HBO MAX app on  service you want to view it. (roku, firestick, etc.)  you should be automatically logged into the app.  If not, login with your Hulu credentials.
6.  The film is located under " recent additions" or just search for it by title.

Thanks. Sounds kinda complicated, so it's probably not going to happen, but I appreciate the info.

Found a trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GRDLX3a-IE

Also there's a 20-minute EPK done with Zoom interviews, but it contains spoilers:

Thanks for the links.  Its not really complicated.  You can even bypass the Hulu portion and just sign up for HBO Max.  They have a ad supported tier and a ad free tier at a higher cost.  I don't like purchasing services, so I constantly look for free trails.  I'm gonna check out the zoom link you posted.  I wasn't aware of this film.  It popped up in a google feed I have on my phone.  I checked out some reviews and saw it was very promising.
