May 30, 2019
Choreographed to the jet-lagged jangle of Sonic Youth's guitar work, Demonlover uncovers the human misery behind cold commerce, and the harrowing reality beyond male fantasy.
March 2, 2008
Rather than deepening the mystery and sense of intoxication, the picture soon becomes one prolonged and very bad hangover.
March 2, 2008
Flatulent, conceited and very, very confusing.
March 2, 2008
It's gripping and provocative, making effective use of actor Charles Berling and the music of Sonic Youth.
August 14, 2007
A potent film.
Top Critic
January 26, 2006
A silly, oddly disagreeable movie.
May 11, 2004
Exhilaratingly original.
November 20, 2003
A stark, unsettling movie, one that grows darker and stranger with every little twist in the plot.
October 9, 2003
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.
October 3, 2003
All about modern disconnect -- hardly an original subject -- but the film gets style points, and in-your-face points.
October 2, 2003
For an hour or so, Demonlover is an entrancingly devious soap opera of executive decadence.
October 2, 2003
A multilayered meditation on the fast-blurring lines between fantasy and reality, and the seductive troika of money, power and sex.
September 26, 2003
Expect demonlover to become a midnight-movie staple in the coming years. And expect shards of it to roil your dreams for weeks.
September 20, 2003
Disturbing, darkly beautiful.
September 20, 2003
You'll be as transfixed as you are utterly confused.
September 20, 2003
Well-scripted, well-acted and occasionally sexy, but just isn't all that interesting.
September 20, 2003
Under cinematographer Denis Lenoir, Demonlover is visually grand, and the music by Sonic Youth is a grabber.
September 20, 2003
A visually stylish movie that equates and fuses high-stakes corporate negotiations with the video-game mentality.
September 20, 2003
I was struck by the complete lack of morality.
