Critics reviews

Perhaps the most striking thing about this crazy shocker is how politically incorrect it is in its seeming anti-Japanese (and anti-French) caricatures; the rude title of Carax is entirely appropriate. I’m still figuring out what Carax had in mind when he made it, but the characters, behaviors, and images are indelible.
