On Thursday night, the Los Angeles Film Festival was at the L.A. County Museum of Art to present the world premiere of writer-director Dennis Hauck’s debut feature, the suspenseful detective story “Too Late.”

LACMA’s Bing Theater was used in part so the movie, an entry in the festival’s U.S. fiction competition, could be screened in a 35-millimeter film print. (A follow-up screening at the festival’s downtown L.A. Live venue will be a digital projection.)

In the film, set and shot in Los Angeles, John Hawkes plays a private investigator who receives a call from a young woman and then spends the rest of the story putting together what happened to her. The style of the film becomes a vital part of its storytelling, as each of its five scenes is told in a single long, uninterrupted take.

As a result, each scene comes to feel like a self-contained play that simultaneously fits into the fabric of the larger story, taking in a hillside park, a crooked businessman’s home, a strip club and bar, a drive-in movie theater and a hotel.

With its vintage-inflected aesthetics and unusual storytelling, the decision to shoot the movie using 35-millimeter film was a natural choice for Hauck.
