Titane

From the director of French cult horror Raw comes this Palme d'Or-winning thriller about an erotic dancer and occasional murderer forced on the run, attempting an improbable disguise.

"Julia Ducournau brazenly smashes the mould with this twisty tale about Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), an erotic dancer with a peculiar penchant for muscle cars, who also happens to be a serial killer when the random urge takes her, or people pests provoke retaliation. When a murder goes awry, Alexia must go on the run, and her path leads her to a fire station populated with hunky young firemen and their steroid-consuming aging chief ( Vincent Lindon). Prone to doubts about his masculinity, he’s also grieving for Adrien, a teenage son who disappeared years earlier. Alexia, binding down her breasts and her burgeoning, unwanted pregnancy sired by a Cadillac, becomes an improbable Adrien..." (Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival)

(Titane) is an extreme movie, violent and pitiless and funny, but the space it provides for not just tenderness but contemplation makes it an "extremely" thought-provoking film as well.

A messy, provocative and wild piece with attitude and style that is never uninteresting.

It all feels like an overworked in-joke, a bait-and-switch story whose hard-right swerve into conventionality is probably intended to be its most shocking element.

Titane is a bit like a pet cat dropping a dead mouse at its person's feet: It's shocking, and kind of gross, but deep down, a loving gesture.
