Exotica Reviews

Bryant Frazer
Film Freak Central

One of the most despairing movies, and yet there is in the precision of its craft and the depth of its empathy something fundamentally uplifting.

Egoyan's first Cannes Film Fest entry is an engaging tale of sexual desire and alienation.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Uses its eroticism as a head trip into loneliness, alienation and desperation.

Egoyan's masterpiece -- a twisting tale of erotic obsession and hypnotic storytelling.

Looking Closer

Egoyan's intent is not ultimately to disturb us, but to look closely at people at their wits' end, desperate, and sad, in hopes of finding absolution for them.

Sunday Times (Australia)

It might be set in a strip club, but Atom Egoyan's tale of loneliness, lust and jealously simmers with sensual heat.

Don't be fooled by the soft-core poster; this haunting tale of pain and memory is as good as they come.

| Original Score: 4/5

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Apparent from its ominous, opening pan is Exotica's craft - the film is deliberate and attentive, and displays action that is not apparently related or significant - at first. Ultimately, the exposition purposefully lacks a cohesiveness.

Demonstrates that the mystery of the human personality must be respected and even hallowed.
