Movie Info

Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and creeping shadows of their giallo-worshiping first two films (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears) for blistering sun, creaking leather and raining bullets in this glorious homage to 1970s Italian crime films. After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on a classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring music by Ennio Morricone, Let the Corpses Tan is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream that will slamfire your senses like buckshot to the brain.

A deluge of technique ... which washes over the viewer in successive waves, alternately breathtaking, tiresome, breathtaking, repetitive.

The second half of the movie is in near-darkness, making even the stylish visuals hard to decipher. What little interest you have in the characters is effectively extinguished as well.

Even the carnage, here, is inspired...More times than I could count I had no idea what the hell was happening, and also just didn't care that I didn't know. Let the Corpses Tan is that strange and beautiful.

While I often enjoy loud, meaningless displays of stylistic excess, this one quickly wore me down.

August 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's a dense shootout of a movie, incorporating elements of the spaghetti western, the ultraviolent grindhouse, and a surreal rumination on art itself. It's violent, it's gaudy, it's erotic; it's ravishing in every way.

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

A feverish, obsessive act of cinematic rehabilitation, a shoot-'em-up conceived in tribute to a peculiar strain of blood-spattered B-movies from the 1960s and '70s.
