    ★★★★½

    Never has the insurance business been so sexy.

    Would make a good double-feature with Atom Egoyan's The Adjuster, about an equally horny insurance man.

    Seeing Annie Giradot face off against a self-sacrificing overly dramatic mother knowing she goes on to play a self-sacrificing overly dramatic mother in The Piano Teacher is just...brilliant. And love that Giradot and Delon somehow do their best work in Italian.

    I live for this drama, for the shadowy streets of Milan, for Alain Delon's cheekbones and dog tags, for all the brothers' barely-there tank tops...I digress.

    It's that feeling when you see a movie that you know influenced a countless number of your favorite films. The restoration is also so good that it even looked good on my shitty 32" TV.

    Pissed that this bougie millennial existentialist apocalyptic satire from Sundance is getting all the attention as opposed to Save Yourselves!, which was far superior!

    When fingernails are the star of a movie.
