  1. 70
    A small revolution tucked inside clichés and willful artistic ineptitude.
  2. 60
    The naked, artless display of nerve and rebellious bile is altogether unique in modern movies.
  3. Seeks to shock and to outrage, and so far it's done both quite nicely.
  4. A vicious, hard-core version of "Thelma and Louise," going nowhere near the Grand Canyon but leaving a trail of carnage in their wake.
  5. As has happened before in less extreme circumstances, filmmakers with purportedly serious intentions punish their viewers for watching their envelope-pushing depiction of sex on the screen by presenting it in the most profoundly negative context imaginable.
  6. Reviewed by: David Edelstein
    The filmmakers have separated themselves from all the emotions of filmmaking except anger.
  7. 0
    It's pornography of the most depressing sort.

    Yes, well, not to stoop to rather ugly personal abuse, but the message to Baise-Moi (which can be translated as "Kiss Me", if you like...anyone?) isn't very well transmitted. It's a sort-of ironic subversion of movie sexism - "look, women can be sick and wrong to men just as easily, look, look, LOOK, DAMN YOU, LOOK!" - and, okay, I get that. But 77 minutes of mindless violence and horrifying sexual shenanegins? The message is so badly blunted by the delivery that Marc D might somehow be right after all, and the whole "subversion" thing was tacked on to justify a rather horrid goreporn film. Except, except, it was a book first. Apparently. If you can imagine such a thing. Watch Irreversible instead. Collapse
