Exterminating Angels (Les Anges Exterminateurs) Reviews

Nick Schager
Lessons of Darkness

A complex, confessional examination of [Jean-Claude Brisseau's] twisted, thorny and ultimately ambiguous feelings toward women and sex.

The content may be dubious, but the execution is hypnotic.

It's hard to tell if Brisseau is a raging misogynist or a radical feminist, and what makes the movie interesting is that he's probably a little bit of both.

[Director] Brisseau calculatedly offsets the silliness of the surreal elements and the earnestness applied to the sex by savoring the overall absurdity.

Mr. Brisseau honors the infinitely varying psyches of his female subjects. One may scoff at his voyeuristic self-indulgence, but when you come right down to it, isn't that what the cinema is all about, one way or another?

Steven Snyder
Zertinet Movies

A sexually-charged, eyebrow-raising thriller that often straddles that fine line between erotic thriller and all-out pornography.

Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

A venture into the world of lust and love scripted with the beauty and discipline of Greek tragedy. As enthralling as it is disturbing. A must see for those who can tolerate the explicit sex.

| Original Score: 7/10

Masturbation as method acting!

Beneath its rueful humor, surrealistic conceits and alluring interludes, Exterminating Angels emerges as a cautionary examination of erotica's pleasures and perils.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Alternately provocative and highly silly, the film overcomes its more ludicrous aspects through its glossy visual style, its frequent doses of humor and the obvious associations it evokes to its creator's real-life experiences.

March 7, 2007
Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The film is ultimately infuriating, subtle, self-indulgent, astute and disingenuous, which makes for great -- if divisive -- conversation.

A date that begins with the salacious movie Exterminating Angels is likely to end up either in bed or in court.

Exterminating Angels is one audaciously, endearingly ludicrous movie.

Exterminating Angels is a luminous picture, beautifully made, loaded with symbolism and mystical-religious imagery, about an artist's self-destructive quest for an unreachable grail.

Provocative, erotic and unforced Exterminating Angels is a cautionary story about the perils of awakening useless desire.

House Next Door

The beauties of Brisseau's movies lie in their defiantly messy imperfections: pretty poison all the way.

Exterminating Angels is Jean-Claude Brisseau's Sex is Comedy, though it could just as easily have been called Anatomy of Hell.
