Critic Reviews for Nocturama
Though director Bertrand Bonello's exacting vision of a Parisian terror plot is as stylised and tensely structured as a psychological thriller, the drama plays out with unnerving realism.
Much like Bonello's previous film, "Yves Saint Laurent," "Nocturama" revels in pure experience. But the sum total of its gliding abstractions is a mite brainless.
You're in for the most suspenseful film to hit town all year.
The frivolity of the film's unexpressed political earnestness-Bonello's unwillingness to give voice to his or his characters' ideas-is matched by the emptiness of its aesthetic.
Audience Reviews for Nocturama
The filmmaking is hypnotic, but I'm more interested in the nihilistic, hypocritical, and almost hipster like terrorism of the protagonists. Their motivations are deliberately muddled, yeah it's anti-establishment but each character revels in the material world they supposedly despise.
Nocturama is not only a gripping (and tense) drama/thriller but also a fascinating narrative exercise whose strength turns out to be its main weakness. Full review on filmotrope. com
