[VIDEO ESSAY] "I Stand Alone" (Gaspar Noť's feature debut) is as much a philosophical denunciation of humanity as it is a thought-provoking treatise on mental illness (as a socially communicable disease).

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.
