Titane ★★★★★

"It’s not a political pamphlet. It’s just the way I see the world. I see the world as it should be — fluid, and more fluid every day, in so many ways."
- Julia Ducournau

Titane has utmost respect for the human body, and the mind that struggles to occupy it. Within its violent outbursts, and fiery metallic passions is a bloody beating heart filled with compassion. At the core of it all is a primal plea for understanding.

They say, a great Palme d'Or winner represents the most urgent development in the medium of cinema, and Titane is, indeed, a great one (My favorite since The Tree of Life). It's a confident stride into a world of genreless movies, and genderless celebration of life. It's a fucking rebirth.
