Demonlover Reviews

Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle

By far one of the most interesting and thoughtful pieces of cinema to savage American cinema screens in ages, and certainly the only incoming French mind-warper with a soundtrack by Sonic Youth.

Demonlover is the kind of film that wants to make you feel stupid for not liking it.

A stark, unsettling movie, one that grows darker and stranger with every little twist in the plot.

| Original Score: 4/5

Kim Morgan

It moves like a breezy techno-thriller but tangles itself with duplicities and metaphors. You get it, and then you don't get it, and then you wonder if you even care.

demonlover wasn't made to be "liked" in the conventional sense.

The movie seems to cannibalize itself and go stupid.

One Guy's Opinion

The sort of thing for which the term Eurotrash was invented. A cerebral variant of 'feardotcom' might better be called 'merdedotcom.'

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Many sequences are more about color or energy than conveying any specific information, but the mood the film sets subtly emphasizes the questions it asks about world trade, personal responsibility and corporate greed.

It's a jumbled mess and you'd have to tie me up and gag me to make me sit through it again.

Demonlover is so incomprehensible that you can't readily accuse it of being anything but almost unwatchable.

A tiresome exercise in self-demonization.

...perhaps the best cinematic adaptation of a William Gibson novel never written.

It's sort of like watching paint dry, except the paint has a Ph.D in comparative media studies.

All about modern disconnect -- hardly an original subject -- but the film gets style points, and in-your-face points.

I enjoyed it tremendously even as I questioned the sanity of everyone involved.

... a brilliant, stunning piece of work, perhaps not Assayas' best, but certainly his most fearless and impassioned.

For an hour or so, Demonlover is an entrancingly devious soap opera of executive decadence.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A multilayered meditation on the fast-blurring lines between fantasy and reality, and the seductive troika of money, power and sex.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

demonlover looked like a promising return to Irma Vep territory, but instead it's merely a hopped-up, arty cover for a standard issue Hollywood thriller.

Expect demonlover to become a midnight-movie staple in the coming years. And expect shards of it to roil your dreams for weeks.
