Call it daring, call it facile, call it the Cinema of Unease, Bertrand Bonello’s new film NOCTURAMA gets an encore screening tonight at the Downtown Independent.
“The new Bonello is a terrorism thriller like no other, recalling Bresson’s Le Diable probablement as much as it does Dawn of the Dead. We follow a group of tense, shifty adolescents as they prowl the streets and subways of Paris, learning through carefully delineated sequences that they’re already well underway with a bombing plot.”*
The film stars Martin Guyot, Manal Issa, Ilias Le Doré, Hamza Meziani, Finnegan Oldfield, Vincent Rottiers, Laure Valentinelli.
NOCTURAMA, Friday, August 18, at 8 pm.
DOWNTOWN INDEPENDENT, 251 South Main Street, downtown Los Angeles.
