I sort of thought Jim Carrey had retired from acting after his spiritual enlightenment, but the trailer for Dark Crimes says otherwise. However, those expecting to find a comedic Carrey better GTFO as in this murder mystery crime thriller Carrey is dead serious.
Dark Crimes is based on a 2008 New Yorker article titled, “True Crimes – A postmodern murder mystery”, by David Grann. The article detailed the true story of “the homicide investigation of a slain businessman and a novelist’s involvement.”
Synopsis: The story follows a police officer named Tadek, “who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow (Martin Csokas). As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg), his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth.”
Dark Crimes hits DIRECTV April 19, 2018 and theaters May 11, 2018.
