Rather than deepening the mystery and sense of intoxication, the picture soon becomes one prolonged and very bad hangover.

Flatulent, conceited and very, very confusing.

It's fun for a while, but gets steadily more opaque, elliptical and annoying.

Our wait for a decent corporate espionage / interactive virtual porn film continues.

A silly, oddly disagreeable movie.

Yes, the subject is entertainment in the 21st century. A shame that it's not more entertaining.

There are those who see something brilliant and profound here. All I can see, however, is the confused work of a director who for some reason completely abandoned style and substance.

...exhausting and mind-numbing.

It ends up feeling like we arrived through a bad dream in Neverland.

Though film buffs will like the many references, the story takes a back seat to the visuals, and images, no matter how sensational, can only carry a film so far.

While Assayas is masterful at creating an eerie mood and has a far-sighted grasp of future shock, he seems to have left orbit while trying to tie up Demonlover's loose ends

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

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.

The movie seems to cannibalize itself and go stupid.

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

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.
October 8, 2003
A tiresome exercise in self-demonization.

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