Soirée Cinéma: “Mauvais Sang”

january, 2019

Event Details

Please join us for our monthly Soirée Cinéma on Friday, January 18 for “Mauvais Sang” (“Bad Blood”), a poetic crime drama that mixes film noir, science fiction, and unrequited love.

Genre: Crime, Drama, Romance

Director: Leos Carax

Review: The pictures are in charge in Léos Carax’s ”Bad Blood.” Most of the scenes seem to have been improvised in the interests of a striking shot, and the characters are in thrall to the camera. In this, his second feature, Mr. Carax lives up to his billing as ”the natural heir of Jean-Luc Godard,” showing a taste for underground types and milieus, an inventive eye and a tolerance for tedium.
