    Titane

    ★★★★★

    From raw, visceral cannibalism to automotive, electerrifying love - Director Julia Ducournau surpasses herself in one of the most uniquely shocking, touching and tender films I've seen.

    It's been a while since a film left me reeling. Titane is an experience that goes straight for the jugular, and perhaps one can say that it's due to the film's direct proximity to New French Extremity. French extremity is of course not the only thing on the menu, as Ducournau manages to…

    ★★★★★

    Otherworldly cinema that transports you into a familiar and yet wholly alien place, where a bleak, brutish sort of humanity is laid bare across 3 mesmerizing hours. This is a film unlike any other.

    It was apparent from the first stretch of the film that this experience will be intensely devoted to delivering a unique and up-close journey into the dark age of an alien world. The camerawork bringing you in as an intimate observer and a passive sort of…
