    Dumont's rigorous, serious attention to the mysteries of good, evil, and faith rewards those willing to be confounded.

    Devotees of Dumont's earlier films – particularly his 1999 film "Humanity" – will instantly recognise the style, the locale, the narrative, the bizarre quasi-realism, in which events take place in a world infinitesimally different from the one we inhabit. As ever, the visionary, radioactive glow is compelling.

    Bleak and compelling.

    Ultimately less an arty provocation than a secular invocation, Outside Satan seems almost helplessly exploratory, an honest account of groping for grace.

    Despite its pictorial intensity and the extremity of some of its scenes, the film proceeds in a mood of detachment, turning the suffering physical beings under its scrutiny into abstractions.

    The vagueness won't win Dumont new fans, but his enigmatic allegory of intertwined good and evil does linger in the mind.

    The promise Dumont once showed has ossified into unholy shtick.
