Where do you draw the line between transgressive rock star behaviour and mental illness? This is the question that beats at the heart of Alex Ross Perry’s HER SMELL, which tells the story of 90’s guitar band Something She and its frontwoman Becky Something (Elizabeth Moss). Backstage and in the studio we witness Becky’s escalating meltdown before the eyes of her fellow musicians, agents, shamans and concerned family members, in a hypnotically enthralling drama about addiction, inner demons and the dangers of believing your own hype.
