User Reviews

 
I was expecting a predictable
21 September 2020 | by mehoknicksSee all my reviews

My two favourite Denis Côté films are CARCASSES and JOY OF MAN'S DESIRING. By a solid margin. They represent the hybrid strain in his work and stand, I guess, peripheral to the more standard art house narrative features, most of which are very strong but fundamentally slight. VIC + FLO probably needs to be granted special status as exemplar by virtue of its being the ultimate eccentric marginal bedraggled folktale.
