Avis des critiques

It’s arguably the greatest-ever big-screen showcase for Jagger, who lords over the climax in a proto-music-video sequence scored to a song written specifically for the film. . . . No filmmaker—not Jean-Luc Godard, Martin Scorsese, or David Fincher—ever captured the singer’s liquid, insidious charisma as well as Roeg.

Roeg is far more interested in texture and the stripping away of context than in separating the real from the unreal. The larger-than-life presences of Mick Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, and James Fox add other complicated layers. It remains a disturbing film because we can’t quite make sense of what we’re seeing, either what’s happening to the characters (does someone die at the end?) or how the movie itself was shot and produced (was everyone completely zonked on drugs at the time?)
