"A really fantastic film... I love this film so much.. I most highly recommend (it) to everyone!" - Cyn Collins, KFAI radio 


"Recommended" - The Stranger


LAKE STREET DETECTIVE stars Paul Dickinson ("wonderful" in Tired Moonlight (2015) - New York Times) in a low tech comedy about a poet-detective searching a Midwest metropolis for a mysterious thief -- from high society, to the underground, and beyond.

A unique piece of regional filmmaking, LAKE STREET DETECTIVE is a collaboration between Seattle filmmaker Erik Hammen and a cast of some of Minneapolis’ most interesting artists and performers.


The result is a sort of Midwestern, punk rock take on Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye" -- a laconic, humorous film about character, class, and the hard-scrabble Minnesota art life.
