RAIN DOG (2012)


 
...it’s a blistering black and white drama about a boxer searching for redemption and it aims high enough to prompt comparisons with serious filmmakers.
— Apocalypse Later (Hal C F Astell)
 

 

 


 

This neo-noir story takes it's name from the term 'RAIN DOG' which describes 'Someone who is lost and cannot find their way'. 

It tells the tale of a man seeking redemption for a violent crime. Made by 18 year old student film maker Jordan Wippell, this tribute to the 40's/50's noir genre explores the inner thoughts of a broken man through a series of black and white imagery and is highly influenced by directors such as Martin Scorsese and Jim Jarmusch.
