  1. DSPRKY's rating of the film Demonlover

    Completely bizarre. The film's narrative fragments as a function of its runtime; by the time you reach the end, you're left scratching your head and feeling vaguely uneasy about everything. 3.5/5.

  2. Pill Yun's rating of the film Demonlover

    A tricky puzzle. A complete mindfuck

  3. grotescsetorg's rating of the film Demonlover

  4. M. Tyler's rating of the film Demonlover

    One of the best movies ever made.

  5. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Demonlover

    It fell apart. It was a bit damaged goods from the start with this idea that porn would become that important or even that interesting. The utterly trivial details of the 3d porn somehow became important in this bizarro world. Part of the reason it disintegrated as a film had to do with the main protagonists being women, fighting each other, to support a world of male fantasy. The ending was just plain insulting.

  6. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Demonlover

    Straightforward corporate espionage...builds up a lot of urgency but also becomes more and more (unnecessarily) incoherent as it goes on. Like every Assayas I've seen, it feels as if large portions of the film were removed and then replaced with random nonsense. There doesn't seem to be any point in doing this, so it ends up being frustrating to watch...

  7. smndvdcl's rating of the film Demonlover

    From intellectual property theft to cyberporn to snuff, this Assayas thriller really is fun for all the family! Morbid kidding aside, the director's cynicism regarding the state of society is by no means hyperbolic. The influence of 'Demonlover' can be seen in films like 'Elle'. An indispensable subject for post-modern film scholars.

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film Demonlover

    D'une intrigue complexe et quelquefois nébuleuse, parsemée de bien des longueurs et de quelques facilités, il nous reste une certaine fascination dans la perfide chorégraphie des principaux personnages, sans cesse animés dans un mortel ballet pour un illusoire et fugace pouvoir... www.cinefiches.com

  14. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Demonlover

    Videodrome: The Corporate Espionage Edition.

  15. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Demonlover

    It's been a while, but I remember trying to work out whether the film was brilliant or inane. Perhaps that's the wrong way to think about it.

  16. isabelka's rating of the film Demonlover

    that burning car chase scene was beautiful, something I've never felt about a car chase scene before

  17. Khashayar Mohammadi's rating of the film Demonlover

    Japanese tentacle porn wrapped in a layer of French Libertinism.

  18. Clint's rating of the film Demonlover

    I keep coming back to demonlover. It's intoxicatingly beautiful but also portrays such a morally repellent world, with slick and alluring surfaces all facilitated by greedy and unsavory means. Absurd but captures a sort of hectic modernity that I found almost sublime. I think Assayas really accomplished something here, both emblematic and idiosyncratic, that will leave me forever dazzled, troubled and intrigued.

  19. El Chaparral's rating of the film Demonlover

  20. Yasser Azmy's rating of the film Demonlover

    Slow, shattered , some moments were good toward the end

  21. BleepyBloop's rating of the film Demonlover

    Trashy, but has some brilliance. The Sonic Youth soundtrack! The female leads are utterly beguiling, and the cinematography/production design in some of the boardrooms/aircraft interiors is done really well. The idea that manga porn can make major bank on the stock exchange is absurd but an amusing premise. Although ultimately schlocky, it does a good job of portraying spiraling desperation.

  22. orangey's rating of the film Demonlover

    do we really need an experimental french version of hostel ?

  23. Ryan Browder's rating of the film Demonlover

    Excellent film to ponder, c'mon mubi fans get that score up... Assayas needs to make more like this!

  24. Jim W's rating of the film Demonlover

    Isn't this the title of the book Richard Caramel was writing in F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Beautiful and Damned"?
