I cannot wait for this. It screened at NYFF and I couldn't make it and for that, I am sad.

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."

Easily the best movie I've seen so far this year. Hypnotic, tender, ferocious, murderous, claustrophobic, hopeless and full of love, thirsty as fuck, bleak and deepest black - soaked in fluids and smeared with soil  - this is absolutely in keeping with the bulk of Denis' output and ranks as another certifiable masterpiece in a career almost entirely composed of them. Pattinson makes a hard impression, as has been his wont the past decade-ish now. Juliette Binoche terrifyingly reminds us she's the best actress working:

Spoiler: ShowHide
There is a boldly extended sequence that is absolutely banananuts beautiful in which Binoche strips down and rides a literal Burn After Reading style metal sex machine inside what is grimly referred to as The Box that feels in its own way as monumentally transportive and tripped-out a sequence as the Stargate at the end of 2001


Dying to see this again.

iím pretty biased as my love of claire denis is boundless, but this is fucking spectacular.   need to see it again soon but this may rank near the top of her oeuvre.

I clicked into this thread thinking I'd see info about a stoner comedy. Instead, I see praise for a film starring one of my favourite actresses. Too bad it's only playing an hour away from me in the city ....

realized earlier that this is the second film so far this year released by A24, and made by French filmmakers, where characters in a confined space go cuckoo and start offing each other.
