Evolution ★★★★★

10 years was a long wait for a new film from Lucile Hadzihaliliovic, but Evolution is well worth the wait. I see it as part of a diptych with Innocence, perhaps the flipside of that film.

This is a beautiful nightmare, soaked in influences - Cronenberg, Del Toro, Zulawski and more - and yet utterly its own thing and a recognisably auteruist work. It's my film of the year so far, by a mile.
