That's One Sensual Assassin

Singular sensations only come along every so often and the neon molasses cinema of director Bertrand Mandico should definitely be filed under "exactly that" -- his second feature film (after The Wild Boys in 2017) is called After Blue (Dirty Paradise) and it hit VOD a couple of weeks back and I forgot to share! I saw it at TIFF last fall and wrote a brief (very brief) thing here about it, calling it "Barbarella on ketamine," and you know what? I stand by that assessment. The movie's rentable on Amazon right at this link -- I recommend it if you find yourself in the mood for something slow and weird and one of a kind... and who isn't in the mood for that, like, all of the time? I mean this is the sort of movie where the official plot synopsis uses the term "sensual assassin." Come on! Incredible! Here's the trailer:
