Audience Reviews for Trouble Every Day (Gargoyle)

    It's all about creating a haunting, unsettling mood (and this is clearly reflected in the vague title), but the problem here is that this arthouse cannibal film starts from nowhere and goes nowhere, failing to engage us in its weird plot and not amounting to anything in the end.

    I... don't know what to say, it sickens me but yet at the same time I am intrigued. The films deals with cannibalism scientifically, which is really disgusting. But the amount of expressionism in the story and set left me in awe; I love the use of close ups and long shots, they made the film extra eerie. Not really my kind of film, but I do appreciate the artistry.

    Haunting, Sexy and Terrifying with great reserved art direction and a shivering soundtrack by Tindersticks.

    Minimal dialogue, a film that tells its story with images instead. At first the pacing and cinematography were hypnotizing, but an hour in, the slowness was effecting my viewing experience. It's clearly a very visually calculated movie, and obviously wants to be considered art house. Due to the minimal dialogue and articulate angles, this movie causes some plot ambiguity that I hoped would not be frustrating, that it would all sort of come together in the end and that acute observation could carry the bulk of the film. It does to an extent, but still too many relationships are left unexplained and there are some disposable characters that simply muddle the story. The main thing I longed for was some more revelation about the dynamic between Dr. Leo and Dr. Brown. The Coré character is chilling, and she certainly makes this fit in a "horror" mode, though it is primarily an art house mystery that emphasizes sex and sensuality with its many flesh-on-flesh closeups. "Most Fucked Up" highlight: Coré at work on the "boy next door", Gallo's character (Dr.Brown) literally eats pussy "New Wave French Horror": this is more an extreme cinema/art house film than horror, but the gory scenes and cannibalistic subject qualify it
