Critic Reviews for Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo
Beyond being tiresome, Intermezzo is just plain ugly, with seemingly little care given to the image - odd, perhaps, given that the film is so clearly and confrontationally about its own director's gaze.
In practice, however, the film is a slog of epic proportions, its trancelike repetitiveness threatening to destroy this critic's fragile grasp on time itself, ushering me into a new plane of star-child boredom.
Kechiche devotes about 60% of its runtime to extreme close-ups of jiggling female derrieres. And while that horrifyingly unexaggerated statistic may sound like a bit of a red flag to begin with, it only gets worse...
Almost the very first shot is of a woman's naked bottom, massively filling the screen, like an inflatable by Terry Gilliam.
Kechiche has always been an admirer of the female posterior, but here he shifts styles into what could be called gluteus maximalism, filling the screen with frantically gyrating hindquarters for literal hours on end.
