The audacious, coolly spellbinding films of French virtuoso Bertrand Bonello—whose THE BEAST is currently rampaging toward an art-house theater near you—first seduce with their sleekly stylized surfaces, then pull the rug out from under you with their subversive, provocatively open-ended critiques of capitalism, colonialism, and bourgeois decadence. From a luxurious Parisian brothel of HOUSE OF PLEASURES to the shopping mall transformed into a hideout for a band of teenage terrorists in NOCTURAMA, Bonello stages his daring visions within meticulously constructed, subtly surreal worlds that he then sets into motion with the mesmerizing, balletic precision of a master choreographer.
