dir. Olivier Assayas
world premiere 2002
U.S. release 2003


Because the movie would atomize into ludicrousness if it lacked the carnivorous force of its framing and editing. Instead, from the fallen Olympus of the corporate jet to the last cathode hell and its lethal irrealities, demonlover flays the skin off of media and finds desire, and flays the skin off of desire and finds money, and more media. Assayas keeps it honest with the stains of his own obsessions.
