Vraiment sans merci....

C'est simplement un cauchemar qui roule a la renverse...a volcano that sucks in its wretched magma, a study in merciless filmmaking. Nothing is resolved, everything is wrong, but there's a possible nullification at "the end" which is really "the beginning," or is it? We can't know because of hints there's some prescience going on. Technically, this is a masterwork, with some unbelievably complicated boom work and extended looping shots that would make DePalma drool. Mulholland Drive meets Momento meets I Spit on Your Grave. I strongly caution you to avoid this if you have a weak stomach and if you prefer tidy moral resolution. There's none here. If you enjoy challenging the limits of your tolerance for depravity, however, give it a whirl.

Le temps detruit tous!
