  1. dionysus67's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Interesting attempt to reconstruct the dynamics of a closed social system like the late 19th-20th century brothel. Yet, the entire venture is too self-conscious for its own good; this is particularly evident in the sumptuous art direction, which, though, is far too academic and devoid of cinematic denotations. The real thing about eros in seclusion belongs to the genius of a Borowczyk. Recommended but overrated.

  2. Elinor Lewy's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Wonderful visuals, nice sisterhood on display, effective moments that highlight the "work" in sex work. A precursor of the British TV show 'Harlots'.

  3. Emily's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    One of the most intoxicatingly directed films I have ever seen, a tapestry of sheer opression in the midst of luxury. It's almost unreal how brilliant Bonello works with postmodernity in his filmography. Maybe the best film that I have seen during my time on here yet.

  4. Epinephrin's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    The reviews have already been said it - it is a greatly realised film that didn't spoke to me at first and slowly but surely got me hooked. The end is so dramatic and sad. P.S. - after 24h, the film, the music, the images still haunt me. Especially the end.

  5. Renton47's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Even when he is being technically crude it is always clear that Bonello is sharing his distinct vision of film, here at once an opioid puzzle box of loosely assembled stories, and also an insight into the mundane experience of being a mirage (to men, history). There is solidarity but no solitary experience, which might complicate the intent were it not always so sumptuous to experience.

  7. Harriehhh's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    French cinema really loves to show, not tell. If you can handle artsy, surrealist films that unravel with a patient kind of provocativeness, House of Tolerance is definitely worth investing some time in.

  9. Dries's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Troppo teatrale per i miei gusti ma alcune scene sono notevoli

  11. smndvdcl's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    This French film transcends its 1900 context. A polemical insight into the legislative dehumanisation of prostitutes that does nothing to protect their human rights, only to vilify them as second-class citizens and leave many open to non-consensual abuse. Legalise, regulate and establish worker's rights for sex workers, rather than criminalise the industry, pushing it further underground.

  21. Rui Oliveira's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Great film. Directing, script, cinematography. Poetic, beautiful, sad...

  22. anarresti's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Strange piece. There seems to be a tension (or not a tension, but a subtle conflict, or a latent contrast) between a celebratory aesthetic and a somber social critique. The aesthetic has something of the decadent toulouse-lautrecian love of bohemian ways. The critique is quite subtle and refined. It's not a direct message. This is like a living painting, done in sensual strokes and colors, allowing the eyes to drift.

  23. Skinnedteen's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    A Tim Walker editorial in motion with a plot of Manet's Olympia.

  24. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film House of Tolerance

    Visually stunning. It mirrors the beginning of decadence brought about by the 20th century. As the whole movie goes indoors, it's interesting to see how the outside world affects their lives through sex role playing (which deals with the objectification of people), safety issues and economics changes. There's an interesting dreamlike atmosphere through out the narrative.
