2 Episodes

Macho swagger goes up against the wrath of Mother Nature in this white-knuckle pairing. Jeremy Comte’s Oscar-nominated short FAUVE is a heart-stopping, stunningly lensed fable of innocence lost in which a game of boyish one-upmanship takes a terrifying turn. It’s followed by Henri-Georges Clouzot’s THE WAGES OF FEAR, an unrelenting excursion into primal terror in which an elemental premise—a group of men with nothing to lose risk their lives to transport a truck full of nitroglycerin through the South American jungle—is masterfully wrung for every ounce of nerve-shredding suspense.
