Trouble Every Day is the rare film that breaks your heart while it grosses you out.
October 24, 2018
Spare and unwilling to overstate its point. Its style is European in all the ways that are often lazily deemed pretentious. But rarely are those pretenses so perfectly horrific.

"Trouble Every Day" is a horror film that works outside the typical genre conventions while constantly referencing films from the canon.

Much in a Denis work depends on players' silences instead of monologues or dialogues.

It's the kind of public self-exorcism a director can only get away with once in a career. And even at its most overdetermined, it still reflects its maker's signature love for intractable contrasts and unresolved ambiguities.

October 6, 2013

A uniquely sensual metaphorical dramatization of sexual obsession that spends a bit too much time on its fairly ludicrous plot.

Vincent Gallo is right at home in this French shocker playing his usual bad boy weirdo role.

The film is an odd little piece, one in which its malaise disposition persists to engender the cinematic thrill that subcultural viewers hope for.

A tone poem of transgression.
May 3, 2002
Denis is an extraordinarily reticent storyteller.
March 28, 2002
Skillfully weaves both the elements of the plot and a powerfully evocative mood combining heated sexuality with a haunting sense of malaise.
March 5, 2002
Ultimately, the message of Trouble Every Day seems to be that all sexual desire disrupts life's stasis.
March 2, 2002
Rarely has skin looked as beautiful, desirable, even delectable, as it does in Trouble Every Day.
March 1, 2002
... a film that is profoundly disturbing, yet hauntingly unforgettable.
