We continue our previous masters series with a weekly sampler of directors whose work to see, selecting a title each week we feel exemplifies their work that may expand beyond the scope of the go-to title.
Trouble Every Day
Dir. Claire Denis, 2001
101 min, French with English subtitles
With a focus on the visceral carnality of desire and the primal nature of the body, this remains as one of her most polarizing films. Two wild-eyed newly weds (Vincent Gallo and Tricia Vessey) in the throes of their honeymoon aim to celebrate their mutual desire, but their lust coincides with a lust for human blood and passionate violence, slaughtering anyone unfortunate enough to enter their web. Filmed like a sensual, bloody dream and utterly fascinating.
