Beau Travail ★★★★★

Like a valve, Denis lets her movie release half a lifetime of underlying tension, depression, anxiety, hate and finally catharsis into a single, majestic, show-stopping final shot that hits me so hard every time I see it, that I almost can't bear it. Beau Travail is a flawless example of a complete and intimate vision that hits it's humanist notes so well that there is almost nothing that actually has to be said through dialogue, because it communicates what it wants to say so well on a level that is more instinctually driven than intellectually.
