Despite a promising name and a promising director at the helm, Simon Killer fails to really deliver anything to its audience. The film tells the story of Simon, a recently college grad who goes to Paris and falls in love with a prostitute. The movie is trying so hard to be just like a modern French film, long shots of Simon walking, an excruciatingly slow pace, and nothing really happening for two hours. But that really only works if the film is actually French. The film does, however, showcase the amazing talent of its lead, Brady Corbet, and contain a very different and interesting soundtrack.
