This review is from: Hors Satan [DVD] (DVD)
One has to wonder what drugs the other reviewers were taking when they watched this tedious, pretentious drivel.
I must say I personally find it's very difficult indeed to watch a film while my head is rammed firmly up my posterior, although I also find this is the perfect way to watch films such as this one if you want to justify the visual diarrhoea that dribbles in lumpy crassness from the screen as anything other than what it is.
French cinema is a sea of imaginative, inventive films, but as with all seas you will occasionally encounter un morceau de merde floating on the surface. God knows what the director ate to produce this doozy, though...

Unlike Kodanshi I find your review gratuitously offensive, which wouldn't matter quite so much if it was in any way informative. It's just a load of bile, without offering any justification for its pure nastiness. As for your list of French films, your poor taste is revealed as much as by those you've omitted as by the multitude of mediocrity that you've recommended. Poor Kodanshi!

I don't mind reading a bad revue but when it's as negative as this AND by someone with my name it doesn't help me at all. I guess the film was a bit too complicated judging by your list of 'good' French films. Of course, you may be right about pretentiousness.

Oh dear, J. R. Dersley - what would YOU recommend then?

I really don't know what to make of this. His list of films contains many good ones, leading me to think the guy's taste isn't bad but his review is absolutely useless. I'm inclined to think it's a sign he didn't understand the film at all, because if he had I would have thought he would have offered at least some identifiable rationale for disliking it. I haven't seen the film, but labelling it pretentious tells me nothing. It leaves the reviewer mostly pretentious I would think...

The film is utter drivel, aimed at those whose mindless pretentiousnesses knows no bounds.

There is no film. It's two people walking around a lot. That's it. It's crap. There is nothing to comment on.
If I wanted to turn on 'film student mode' I could spew thousands of mindless words all over your screen, that would give the impression that I'm really intelligent, that I am fully immersed in the world of philosophy, that I am so superior to other film goers because I can see the hidden depth of this film when they can't.
But I won't, because I'm not so arrogant that I think that if someone doesn't like a film it's because they're too stupid to understand it. This film is simply crap.
