15 years later, ‘Maelstrom’ is still Denis Villeneuve’s most elusive film

15 April 2015 4:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last year, Canadian auteur Denis Villeneuve released Enemy, which is an elusive and polarizing piece of cinema but believe it or not, it is not his most elusive film. Yes, the same filmmaker who gave us the final shot of Enemy, actually had a film that was more disorienting: That film was Maelstrom (2000).  While Maelstrom may not be his best film (Disclosure: I love Prisoners, it was my favorite film of 2013), 15 years later it is still his most confounding work to date.

Maelstrom, through not-so-direct plot terms, follows Bibi (Marie-Josée Croze), a young model and daughter of a fashion icon who falls into disarray after getting an abortion. After one drunken night she ends up hitting a man with her car, and after plunging her car into a river, she sets out to find out who the man she killed was. Evian (Jean-Nicolas Verreault) has returned home to sort out »
