Alexandra Serio’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wow Julia Ducournau really tried to ruin Future Islands and bisexual lighting for me in the only comfortable scene in this film.
I squirmed and writhed the entire time through this body horror.
A lot of Cronenberg elements in play here but also Tarantino’s schtick of wanton violence paired with golden oldies for a comedic schlock effect.
The cinematography was stunning especially the long car lap dance at the beginning of the film that rivaled the crane shot for OUATIH in its complexity.
Central themes, for me at least, since there is A LOT going on, the performance of gender, fear of childbirth, parental rejection and fear of intimacy.
