Critic Reviews for The King of Escape
Above all, the film makes us interested in what Mr. Guiraudie will come up with next.
Wafer-thin plot is more an excuse for parading a rich selection of character types than anything else, as, refreshingly, the movie never gets tied up in emotional angst or sexual guilt.
Weaving numerous influences into a rich emotional tapestry, Alain Guiraudie's The King of Escape skillfully absorbs and updates its assertive cinematic forebears.
Cruising for Alain Guiraudie seems to be the way of nature, a drive that doesn't discriminate.
Audience Reviews for The King of Escape
We watched this based on the stellar reviews by 7 pro-reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes. Apparently the filmmakers think everyone older man is this French town is bi-sexual tending toward homosexual. The film follows a forlorn and somewhat confused older gay guy as he gets infatuated with a teenaged girl and has various drug and sexual experiences. Slow and doesn't really go anywhere or say anything. Kept giving it another ten minutes and finished it but it was ultimately unsatisfying and kind of lame. A bit of a waste of time.
