April 28, 2015
The kind of film we'll look back on more fondly after everybody involved has moved on to bigger and better things.

There's a highly engaging dramatic thriller hidden somewhere in this lugubrious, tamped-down Parisian nightmare.

Self-consciousness passing for style.

Unpleasant, but not negligible.

Simon Killer leaves you uneasy long before you wonder if Simon will get caught or find a conscience for his crimes, both real and imagined.

Any American distributor who bothers with this one would be well advised to book it into bondage clubs, where at least half the audience is likely to enjoy pointless, masochistic experiences.

Due to the overdone visual trickery from writer/director Antonio Campos, the movie ends up killing itself. And might as well be retitled Simon Suicide.

An unpalatable Franco-American entre one would like to send back to wherever it came from.
