I am not quite convinced that our society is all that sick as this film's exegetes would have it, but assuming that it is, cures like this "satire" are considerably worse than the disease.

As La Grande Bouffe trudges between scenes of culinary and sexual excess with grim determination, it becomes impossible to care who's stuffing what in where.

There's a disconnect since the four main characters aren't likable people and they don't act reasonably towards themselves or anyone else, but we aren't give any real POV. They aren't comic slobs to laugh at nor do they have any aristocratic dignity.

Sade's 120 Days of Sodom reworked, with few of the resonances and none of the rigour of Pasolini's Sal.

La Grande Bouffe didn't leave me so much excited as exhausted.
