Julia Ducournau France, 2016

elenagallen's rating of the film Raw

Raw builds up tension with sibylline brilliance. Its visual narrative is rare as in innovative though straight-forward. An artistic achievement with female signature. I mention Ducournau's genre because its bliss to see new languages or new use of former ones. And yes - with the rise of female directors this sense of cinematic freshness will no longer be a beautiful oddity, but the rule.
