“It feels like a giallo take on “Phantom of the Paradise,” with heavy influences from “Peeping Tom” and Todd Haynes’ 1991 feature debut, “Poison.” This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.” -Katie Walsh, LA Times

“This movie packs in plenty of cinema acrobatics and spectacle without ever feeling out of control, even as it morphs into a far-fetched whodunit. Gonzalez contains his love of screen excess with a deliberation that never feels contrived or cheap.The movie is an apt, and not at all unserious, example of queer cinema at its most playful.”-Glenn Kenny, New York Times

Paris, 1979: A masked killer is at large, targeting members of a gay porn production company in this stylish Palme d’Or-nominated love letter to giallo films starring Vanessa Paradis. In 35mm.
