Flawlessly executed, brilliant combination of things!

Wow! It's almost as if this movie was made specifically to cater to my tastes! This movie came onto my radar when it's incredible music score by M83 went up on Spotify. It instantly became one of my favorite albums of 2019, which is a great feat for a score. I read a bunch of mediocre reviews so I didn't rush to see it, but wow, were those reviewers wrong.

It's as if Dario Argento produced and directed (at his peak), brought in Asia Argento and John Cameron Mitchell to write, and together they created this beautiful spiritual love-letter to William Friedkin's CRUISING. The movie has a WICKED sense of humor and tons of memorable sequences that never hold back on the intensity or the photographic grace. Vanessa Paradis is striking and intriguing as the lead, and a bit of an anti-hero. The killer and the way he kills is truly frightening. He will not be forgotten. And the wonderful music adds so much - M83's psychedelic disco-synth score sits somewhere in the realm of Patrick Cowley crossed with Jean-Michel Jarre's breakthrough "Les Granges Brulees". Other non-M83 tracks by artists such as Malaria! fit in seamlessly.

I truly loved this movie and was greatly surprised by how well-crafted, thoroughly amusing, and how "it's own" it managed to be. One of my favorites of 2019 (yes, I see it was originally released in 2018 but it got released in 2019 in the U.S. so I'm counting it as 2019).
