    Titane

    ★★★★★

    Blue lights illuminate feminist autonomy, pink hues gently wash over steroid-fueled masculinity, and pitch-black motor oil assumes the place of blood in Julia Ducournau’s Titane — a watershed film so far ahead of its time, you’d think that a 2049 rendition of Marty McFly dropped off a DCP of it in the same spirit as his guitar-shredding school dance performance of “Johnny B.
