Un couteau dans le coeur

Yann Gonzalez Frankrike, 2018

HKFanatic's rating of the film Knife + Heart

Gorgeously shot on 35mm and 16mm by director Yann Gonzalez, "Knife + Heart" evokes a young Gregg Araki transported to giallo-era Italy to make a decidedly unpretentious erotic horror film. The dreamy, Cocteau Twins-channeling soundtrack by M83 is the perfect compliment to the neon-drenched visuals (though my favorite track, the one that plays over the credits, is actually "Love's Refrain" by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma).
