i stand alone.....i heard of that film before but can't remeber why...is it any good?????
Brilliant film. Quite graphic at times (spousal abuse, incest, suicide, and at one point we see a sex scene which shows penetration.)
damn .thats freak'n nuts.....
1.) who directed
2...)the taxi driver comparison...is it along the sam lines just more graphoc
3.)i take it this is hard to find??
4..)..is it the most disturbing film you have seen.??
1.) a French director named Gasper Noe (who is considered by many to be the most talented director in France right now.)
2.) Gasper Noe sites Taxi Driver as the main influence behind this film. Similiar in it's use of inner monologue through voiceover, and the theme of a loner who despises his society and the people in it. More graphic, but just as much artistic merit.
3.) the film is actually available on DVD at Amazon.comhttp://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005K9O8/qid%3D1061201996/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/103-1857393-8182243
4.) Definitely the most disturbing film I've ever seen as it feels more realistic than some of these other films mentioned and the violence is as much psychological as it is visual. I won't ruin the ending, but the last scene in the film made me so uncomfortable that I was amazed a piece of fiction could make me feel that way...and there lies the brilliance of the film. The acting and gritty cinematography is so well done that at times this movie plays like a documentary.
