So dark, so depressive. An uncertain man with certain thoughts. He has thoughts about every little thing but he can not implement them. Gaspar Noé used fast-motion in some parts that increased the excitement of those scenes and he flashed some images very well that you can have an idea about The Butcher's thoughts.
Now faced with the eternal quandary of how to dismiss a Noe film without resorting to the base reactions he wants you to dislike it for.. A disservice to anyone who thinks thoughtfully about the human animal as an overvalued entity. Lacks any wit that makes something like 'The Comedy' a genuine subversion of its characters ideals, which just makes this feel hateful. I was never shocked, just bored. I didn't succeed
Noe Gaspar's cinema, in later years, would be known to investigate hate and violence. Only recently he would reveal those investigations were really the unrest of someone whose main drive is Love. In "I Stand Alone" it is the roots, the very nature of misanthropy that he looks into. The lead character keeps finding reasons to hate everyone. And he wants to be stronger that way, but everyone is one person too many.
