I’m pleased that The Week gave me the go-ahead to write about Let the Corpses Tan, the new film from married filmmaking duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, whose last feature, The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears, came out about five years ago; it’s an oddball movie, grimy, sleazy, and likely way off-radar for a portion of their readership, so it gives me endless delight to break it down and visit its violent eccentricities on my audience.
In less poetic phrasing, that means I really liked Let the Corpses Tan, and I’m especially impressed by its editing techniques. So I focused hard on that and compared it to Rashomon, because it’s Hot Take Friday*.
Head over to The Week to read the full piece.
*This is not that hot a take. But it is Friday.
