The good stuff
If Ducourneau's Raw was still somewhat restrained and apprehensive, Titane does away with that first-time timidity and serves a gritty, angry and unrestrained kick in the gut. Well-acted, unrelenting, stylistically polished and bewilderingly creative, Titane is a film that leans on the crutches of genre cinema while propelling it forward with vision, courage and integrity. It's certainly not a ride for everyone, but those who love films that explore the boundaries between genre and auteur cinema better strap in for a memorable experience.
Raw is a great film for a director just starting out in the business.
