chanandre's rating of the film Climax

[UCI El Corte] Don't know what to do with this obscur objet (de) du désir... This felt like Johnny Guitar on acid. With a stalking camera eavesdropping on momentous decisions and younghood fuck-ups. Sex was substituted by dunno what, what's that monster that lies between sex and love, life and death? [Upside down shot reminded of a particular sequence in 'The Last of Us' between Ellie and Joel hanging upside down).
