Critic Reviews for Hors Satan (Outside Satan)
I find the movie mind-blowing, though it will likely alienate as many viewers as it impresses.August 2, 2013 | Full Review…
It's difficult to feel transported by the impossible when the film's world is already so clearly governed by the arbitrary.
Inarticulate characters, long blank stares, forced camera angles and allegorical nonsense make up this pretentious study in quasi-religious ennui.
Maddening, pretentious, hypnotic and transcendent in roughly equal measure.
Despite its pictorial intensity and the extremity of some of its scenes, the film proceeds in a mood of detachment, turning the suffering physical beings under its scrutiny into abstractions.January 17, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5
Hors Satan is stark, strange and uncompromisingly personal. It's also vivid and unforgettable.January 17, 2013 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Hors Satan (Outside Satan)
Jan 23, 2013An enigmatic young man (Dewaele), living in the marshes on the outskirts of a small town, appears to have healing powers. He is befriended by a young goth (Lematre), whose abusive father he shoots dead. As the film progresses, some fall victim to his murderous rampage while others are healed of their ills. Last year Dumont left his comfort zone with 'Hadewijch' a Paris set tale of religious fanaticism. It was his most mainstream work yet, following what was basically a straight narrative. His latest sees him return to his usual milieu of unattractive faces set against the grim backdrop of Northern France. It's self-indulgent garbage, consisting mainly of our protagonists walking across wind-swept fields. As is the norm for modern French cinema, it's filled with violence, though not as graphic as the work of most of Dumont's contemporaries. The movie is not only grim to look at, but rough on the ears too, thanks to Dumont's insistence on naturally recorded sound. Bizarrely, 'Hors Satan' shares a silly sight gag (a character pulled back comically by a wire after being shot) with 'Django Unchained'. It seems Tarantino saw this at Cannes last year.The Movie W Super Reviewer
