Koen Mortier's fourth feature film is another stunner. It's not quite as out there as his first two films, but few directors manage to catch the gritty underbelly of society with so much flair and enthusiasm. Skunk is more of a straightforward drama, though not without touches of (the darkest of) dark comedy. The cinematography is fitting, the sound design is amazing and the captivating performance of Thibaud Dooms is exceptional. The brutal finale is the icing on the cake. Mortier didn't disappoint.
