The stuff that I liked -- chiefly Gonzalez's impressive appropriation of the standard gallo visual tropes and the performance by the undeniably charismatic Paradis -- were more than enough to keep me going.
[A] cheeky queer thriller. Not only is director/co-writer Yann Gonzalez's tongue planted firmly in cheek - his film features comic porno humor - but he also takes some real chances, most of which pay off.
Delirious, delicious, neon comic-horror wellspring is slasher send-up and apotheosis, more than a brilliant tribute to the perfumed poison-candy excesses of an era's exploitation films: it levitates above them in its own extravagant liminal space.
Gorgeously shot and directed with an energy and vitality all its own, this is one of the great discoveries of 2019, a film that subverts all of its influences to make something wholly original. A true gem of a film.
It feels like a giallo take on "Phantom of the Paradise," with heavy influences from "Peeping Tom" and Todd Haynes' 1991 feature debut, "Poison." This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.
Brilliantly photographed in primary colors of blue, red and yellow... Gonzalez reflects his story back upon itself via films-within-his-film, black and white photo negative nightmares, dance floors, dark rooms and sex shows.
