    I gave it 2 stars because I watched it to the end. I also gave it 2 stars because I was only slightly angry at myself for wasting my own time. I also gave it 2 stars because it deserves 2 stars.

    Vincent Gallo is extremely talented in many ways. He is also complex sensitive, poetic and very funny. The public responses to him vary greatly. He is completely misunderstood and those who misunderstand his intensions and humor will certainly misunderstand his masterful works of art. Gallo's performance in Trouble Every Day is fantastic

    Perfection, in every single way, but I just can't explain why. It contains one scene of absolutely carnage, and another which left me very, very unsettled, both of which were very disturbing and gory, but somehow they contributed to the bigger picture, lifting a moody, spectacularly structured film into a higher realm. The result is a bloody, brilliant, bold and overwhelming Perfection, in every single way, but I just can't explain why.

    A slow-moving film which I found myself longing to end! Vincent Gallo needs to cheer up and Beatrice Dalle is just loopy (as usual). Beautifully shot though, when the gory bits do come they are very shocking. I felt rather queasy! Too many questions were left unanswered - that's French cinema for you!

    Although it was undoubtedly the most disturbing film I have ever seen, it also featured such powerful acting, that I almost believed that what was actually happening on screen - was ACTUALLY happening. The director's neglect to restrain ANYTHING on screen makes the film so undoubtedly powerful that by the time the film is over, you can't get the images out of your head.

    Gallo and Dalle are sublimely tragic figures; the scene in which Shane stalks around Notre Dame like Frankenstein unleashed is a pitch-perfect encapsulation of the way the film plays with and deepens movie-monster archetypes.
  2. Something haunting is going on here, but it's as difficult for the viewers as it is for the characters to sink their teeth into anything truly satisfying.
  3. A demented, orgiastically gory vampire/sex parable.
