A rock on the head... I felt as if I was hit that way watching this new opus from Claire Denis at its TIFF world premiere.People walking out, scarce applause, you know you watched something else, something reminding you that cinema really is an incredible medium, acting is more than reading texts and showing pretty faces, and writing is an art on its own.Without spoiling the movie, just know that it's not what you expect, likely not what you want to see (or I seriously question your sanity), and that the U.F.O may be a metaphor for the movie itself and/or the viewer, absorbed as they are inexorably towards an unforgiving black hole.Cast is amazing, with special mention for Juliette Binoche, unforgettable, although you wished you could.

Black holes inside outReviewed bylaurent-milotVote: 10/10
I went in on this watching just the first trailer some time ago.I love cerebral sci-fi/horror and overtly weird movies, so this seemed like my cup of tea.
But no. It's horrible on every level except for the general idea and some concepts. But as a movie it effectively destroys itself in the first act alone: overt exposition by tertiary characters that we never see again, forced and cringe inducing dialogue. Bizarre choices of editing, scene-placement and a paletera of secondary characters that have interesting stories but are never explored in any meaningfull way.
While the first 20 minutes or so set up an amazing cerebral experience, with a great performance from Pattinson, it quickly desolved into try-hard symbolism that is not just hitting you over the head, but also frustratingly hard to follow.
There are some cool shots and moments, but in the end 3/4th of the movie felt as useless nonesense that tries too hard to be edgy.
If you want a sci-fi movie with an interesting story you might rather watch the picture of a moon on your screen for 2h, this will give you more insight and entertainment than this "piece of art". But I do have to admit I stopped watching after 1h and went to Netflix.
