December 20, 2007
A complex, confessional examination of [Jean-Claude Brisseau's] twisted, thorny and ultimately ambiguous feelings toward women and sex.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

... the film is passably entertaining but dramatically inert.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
June 1, 2007
The cinematic equivalent of getting drenched with a splash of ice water.
May 22, 2007
It lacks any introspection to illuminate the erotic subject matter.

Endless auditions get the annoying Francois nowhere closer to grasping what turns women on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 10, 2007
It's not smart enough to actually pull off what it purports to do, and it's not free enough to simply enjoy itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 10, 2007
Critics I admire have assured me that many of Brisseau's earlier films are less silly, more interesting, and even commendable.
May 10, 2007
The content may be dubious, but the execution is hypnotic.

Little more than Lesbians Lesbians Lesbians.

May 4, 2007
Gorgeous French silliness, yes, featuring stunning women having languorous, artful sex with each other. What was I saying? Oh yes, the silliness. Artful, gorgeous, sexy, sure, but ridiculous nonetheless.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 26, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 12, 2007
[Director] Brisseau calculatedly offsets the silliness of the surreal elements and the earnestness applied to the sex by savoring the overall absurdity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

... plenty of heat, not all that much light.
March 21, 2007
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?
March 21, 2007
A sexually-charged, eyebrow-raising thriller that often straddles that fine line between erotic thriller and all-out pornography.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
March 16, 2007
Has heat but little light; it speaks of pleasure while treating it as a dirty word. The cast huffs and puffs but the exercise, sadly, remains academic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 12, 2007
If the movie was meant to render sympathy to Brisseau, it only reinforces how monstrously repugnant he is. The audacity to suggest his complete innocence makes the whole thing seem like black comedy, only the core sentiment is not funny.
March 11, 2007
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

Exterminating Angels is undeniably arousing.
