    Ticket paid for the full seat but I only needed the edge.

    ★★★★

    Original sci-fi horror film that takes its inspiration from Cronenberg (both father and son) and Lynch, but still retains its own vision and execution. It’s filled with surreal nightmare sequences which results in a creepy atmosphere. But where it distinguish itself is in the style, its stylistically shot with some blue filter and lighting, the ambient synth soundtrack give it some retro vibes to it, there’s even a scene which is almost a hommage to Drive. Maybe the third act is…

    Tightly directed movie. For an one-setting movie quite creative on a narrative and audiovisual level. Great acting by Laurent who is trapped in a claustrophobic, cynical and desperate setting and is being assisted by the emotionless MILO, which creates a fine contrast between the two. Maybe it’s a bit too long, and it slightly drags in the second act, with some questionable plot elements, but the third act, and especially its ending make up for it. Visually dynamic enough and the score works perfect on the atmospheric and emotional aspects. These are the little Netflix gems we need.

    ★★½

    It’s full of potential but unfortunately does not manage to live up to it. Mainly it lacks in script with a mediocore story, uninteresting characters you don’t care about. At times it feels very ‘Annihilation’ like but less thrilling and mysterious. There are some nice psychedelic moments but not as intense or colorful as it could’ve been. The best thing might be the soundtrack, which is atmospheric and piercing. Ben Wheatley can do much better than this, atmospheric and story wise, for example: Kill List.

    Noé can’t miss.
    A personal mix of a small cinema essay, a YSL promotion and a short mockumentary where a film set turns to hell. Visually not his best but certainly his most aggressive, the last 20 minutes are an intense spiritual trip. 

    The course of this film is again typical Noé, in which the audiovisual aspect becomes more and more intense and the stress and hectic pace increase. Despite the lack of sex, drugs and harsh violence it knows…
