    Stunning film. This is Gaspar Noé exploring restraint as an artist and delivering a brutal knockout as a result. Truly inspired work.

    I’d describe the whole look and feel of this film as postcoital glow. It’s thirsty af. The beach volleyball scene is peak cinema. Iconic.

    This film is magic. I saw a screener of Petite Maman a few months ago and found it so captivating that I promised myself I’d see it on the big screen upon its stateside release. Promise kept. Heart full. Vive la France.

    “It seemed like only yesterday I was carrying my own weight.”

    This is one of the most terrifying films I’ve ever seen. It’s also occasionally hilarious. Coincidentally, I have the latest episode of Barry to look forward to. Somehow that feels like a fitting salve/companion piece to David Lynch’s Hollywood phantasmagoria.

    Screened as a 4k remaster at the Laemmle Monica.
