Audience Reviews for Nocturama

  • Dec 19, 2020
    Bertrand Bonello's Nocturama is certainly an ambitious project that attempts to introduce numerous characters who all have a particular participation and task to complete in order to pull-off a terror attack on the political and corporate establishments throughout Paris. Bonello's juggling of the characters and construction of events is hugely impressive indeed as he also introduces them hiding out in a shopping mall and indulging in the very consumerist and capitalist constructs that they seemingly proclaim to abhor. I wasn't entirely sure about the mixed messages but I found it sharply satirical and a biting polemic on our current socioeconomic system.

    The filmmaking is hypnotic, but I'm more interested in the nihilistic, hypocritical, and almost hipster like terrorism of the protagonists. Their motivations are deliberately muddled, yeah it's anti-establishment but each character revels in the material world they supposedly despise.

    Nocturama is not only a gripping (and tense) drama/thriller but also a fascinating narrative exercise whose strength turns out to be its main weakness. Full review on filmotrope. com
