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.

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 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

Masturbation as method acting!

March 8, 2007

March 7, 2007
Alternately provocative and highly silly, the film overcomes its more ludicrous aspects through its glossy visual style, its frequent doses of humor and the obvious associations it evokes to its creator's real-life experiences.
March 7, 2007
The film is ultimately infuriating, subtle, self-indulgent, astute and disingenuous, which makes for great -- if divisive -- conversation.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

A date that begins with the salacious movie Exterminating Angels is likely to end up either in bed or in court.

March 6, 2007
Exterminating Angels is one audaciously, endearingly ludicrous movie.
March 1, 2007
Exterminating Angels is a luminous picture, beautifully made, loaded with symbolism and mystical-religious imagery, about an artist's self-destructive quest for an unreachable grail.
February 28, 2007
It was good for me.
Full Review | Original Score: B
February 20, 2007
Provocative, erotic and unforced Exterminating Angels is a cautionary story about the perils of awakening useless desire.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 13, 2007
The beauties of Brisseau's movies lie in their defiantly messy imperfections: pretty poison all the way.
February 10, 2007
Exterminating Angels is Jean-Claude Brisseau's Sex is Comedy, though it could just as easily have been called Anatomy of Hell.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
