France, United States | 2012 | Antonio Campo
The unflinching, coolly elegant new thriller from the director of Afterschool is a descent into Gaspar Noé territory.Brady Corbet (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Funny Games) plays a heartbroken, unhinged young man who flees to Paris and there begins an ill-fated relationship with a prostitute. “A beautifully made look at ugliness and brutality, the kind of oxymoronic exercise that fascinates some and repels others.” –Arizona Republic.
