Bastards (Les salauds)


Introduced by journalist and film critic Eric Hynes

Dir. Claire Denis. 2013, 100 mins. DCP courtesy of IFC Films. With Vincent Lindon, Chiara Mastroianni, Julie Bataille. Denis’s nighttime thriller is her first digitally photographed work (by the great cinematographer Agnès Godard), a graphic and absorbing tale of murder, sex, and business that was loosely inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s film The Bad Sleep Well and an act of sexual violence from William Faulkner’s Sanctuary.
