A big thank you to Scott Pfeiffer for his write up on the wild worlds of DEVILS DON'T FORGET Here's an exercpt
If I have made a lot of cinematic references, it's because the Mammals makes a uniquely cinematic theater: there's as much Tarantino in there as there is Beckett and Brecht. It's there in the language, which has the fun, zingy poetry of a Ben Hecht. But it's in the actor's faces and bodies as well, which evoke a visceral classic cinematic physiognomy, a hard jaw or a curvy form, and extends all the the way to the lighting: the palette of "Devils Don't Forget" is black and white, almost chiaroscuro, which makes the rare strokes and dabs of color all the more vivid.Here's the link!

DEVILS DON'T FORGET
written and directed by Bob Fisher
“It's like Dario Argento putting flowers on the grave of Raymond Chandler” - Nick Green w/The Reader
DEVILS DON'T FORGET – An amnesiac tries desperately to not remember his past, convinced that he was an accessory to some unspeakable evil. But his amnesia provides no refuge when devils he had hoped to forget return to collect their due. Inspired by 50’s hardboiled noir as well as classic Grand Guignol, DEVILS DON'T FORGET is an atmospheric descent into a metropolis populated with Femme Fatales, Punch Drunk Gangsters, and Shadowy Figures seemingly supernatural. It is the story of a man who tries to escape a demonic global conspiracy using self induced amnesia.
