HORS SATAN

Last weekend the L'âge d'or/Filmvondsten festival started out in Cinematek.

The most anticipated film of the festival is beyond a doubt Bruno Dumont's Hors Satan (one of two films he will be releasing in 2011, the other one being L'empire). Dumont seems to be continuing research on one his prevelant themes: (the lacking of) the sacral in contemporary society.

Hopefully Dumont wont fall of his "piédestal" like his compatriot Gaspar Noé did last year with the surprisingly nugatory and thus appropriately titled Enter the Void. Both directors got categorized in what Art Forum critic James Quandt dubbed the New French Extremity.
