Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
Dir. Bertrand Bonello. 2017, 130 mins. DCP. With Finnegan Oldfield, Vincent Rottiers, Hamza Meziani, Manal Issa. In French with English subtitles. A group of Parisian youths perpetrate a series of spectacular terrorist bombings in the city, and then hide out in a luxury shopping mall. Unfolding like a first-rate thriller, this equally stylish and unsettling provocation offers no easy answers. The film is both brazen and ravishing, and provocative—to say the least—in its refusal to simply condemn terrorism. In the second section of the film, after the bombing, Bonello’s scope widens, and he takes aim at a consumerist culture that in some ways fosters alienation and anger.
