Seul contre tous. Another film I'll be revisiting (99.99% probability), hoping to get it this time. Tweet from TIFF '18: "Sadly, the central conceit just didn’t work for me, serving as a constant distraction rather than food for thought. I began involuntarily imagining how other recent period films—not just Phoenix, but e.g. Atonement or The Master—would play in this mode." Should also note that I found the film largely banal apart from said conceit; a conventional period version might well have put me to sleep. But I'll try again before the year is out.
