Double Lover (François Ozon, 2017)

☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼ out of 10☼

Cronenberg's Dead Ringers clearly ring throughout Ozon's latest film - a sexy, classy, twisty, fetishistic psychological drama/thriller which wears its high-brow camp on its meticulously designed sleeve, featuring bold, uninhibited, well-rounded performances by Marine Vacth and Jérémie Renier in a kinky, dangerous, reality-splitting game of mental disbalance whose rules seem to be written under the heavy influence of Polanski, Verhoeven and De Palma (maybe even Satoshi Kon) and which is played out mostly inside impeccably furnished suites filled with mirrors or in a museum of foreboding, somewhat intimidating modern art, all shot with a keen eye for oft-symmetrical composition.
