Why does everybody possess intense feelings of hate towards such a film ? It may be subversive, yes, but I don't get in what way it offends its' viewers, considering the fact that it provokes them, which isn't a crime. The haters bought on publicity to the film so that I can withhold it's current cult following, but I don't think the film deserves it.
i don't know what it is but i really dig baise-moi. i've watched it many times, and there's something actually comforting about it. its campy, its great, its original. people need to calm the fuck down.
Everyone was outraged by Lars Von Trier's decision to use real sex in his film, however this movie did that way before and no one flicked a eyelid.
It maybe not the first to use this "Method" of film making, but for its worth, all the filth and smut that happens in this film is contextual. Its in context there for its not just mindless porn. However saying that, Porn has better lighting and acting unfortunately.
Another offering from the popularly termed French New Extremity. Adhering generously to the criteria for explicit visual content, the film sadly does not deliver so well in other areas. The acting is trite, the direction clunky at times. Subversive, visceral provocation is the main draw here, and consequently delivers solely on that level.
okay it was horrid.. but i think under the direction of gaspar noe or catherine breilliant , it could have been amazing.. the main girl had something special.. with a bigger budget, it could have been amazing
Weird that they translated the French title into 'Rape me'; as 'Baise moi' means 'fuck me', in both ways of the term.
There is a kind of poetry in this desperate visual violence as the sex and killing scenes push the viewer into something deeper and perhaps more primal.
The film also raises an interesting question: is sex more shocking than killing and violence in cinema? An X rated version of 'Thelma & Louise'...
