Movie Info

Set in France in 1980, a middle-aged ex-con, former butcher tries to salvage a life that has long been on the skids. Plagued by racist, misogynist thoughts and a hair-trigger temper, he looks for a job, tries to borrow money, and attempts to retrieve his daughter from an institution. If you saw this man walking toward you, you'd probably cross the street. Director Gaspar Noe decides, instead, to take a walk inside his brain.

...I Stand Alone will not easily be forgotten - and in this day and age, that's an incredibly rare thing.

Certainly, there are aesthetic pleasures in I Stand Alone, but they don't redeem the depraved heart that beats at the center of the film.

Surprisingly sensitive as well as genuinely shocking.

More of a young turk provocation than a measured and mature intercession on rage and despair, but it certainly achieves the unsettling effect Noe intended.

Noe deserves credit for a cinematic vision which is remarkably his own.

For all the static bleakness of his movies, Noe does have a sinful sense of play.

The real violence here, the far more deeply disturbing violence, is the violence inside the mind of the protagonist.

I didn't give a flying fuck about Irreversible, and considering how terrible it was, I was hesitant to check this one out. Thankfully, it wasn't as bad as I'd feared. Noe fantastically displays the feelings of a common man and what one has to suffer in day-to-day life. The frustration of the central character (the butcher) is displayed marvelously. However, I was disappointed by the ending. IMO, the director took it a bit too far. And I wonder how true it is to say it was a creative scene. That scene displays how rotten the director's mind is. Some call it creativity, though. Well, to each, his own. Then again, I guess I wasn't the target audience here. So, in a way, it's my fault that I'd to witness such horrible and pretentious sequences.

Taking into consideration all the aspects, Morality and Justice do leave some impact, but the final stroke (which, in my humble opinion, was totally unnecessary and avoidable) is equally harmful.

The deranged horse butcher from Carne is now struggling to regain any control of his life after spending many years in jail. This is a fantastic story, incredibly disturbing and heart-wrenching, with an amazing performance by Philippe Nahon and an absolutely brilliant final act.
