World renowned filmmaker Clair Denis's most controversial, divisive and under appreciated film to date. With its gory, outr ̌film style, TROUBLE EVERY DAY shocked audiences at it's 2001 Cannes Film Festival debut for its graphic depictions of carnal lust as a cannibalistic disease. Named after a Frank Zappa song, the film follows American newlyweds Shane and June Brown to Paris on their honeymoon. Once there, Shane begins a search for his former colleague Leo, who might be in possession of a cure to a tropical virus that has transformed both Shane and Leo's wife into a ravenous sexual cannibals. With gorgeous cinematography by acclaimed director of photography Agns̈ Godard, Denis delectably photographs the shockingly violent imagery that terrfies not so much by its goriness as by its correlations between intellect and instinct, ecstasy and agony, displaying the blurred and often interchangeable limits of human desire. With music by the British chamber pop band Tindersticks, the film was largely panned by critics upon its initial release but is now considered Denis' most overlooked masterpiece.

Arty, sexy, French take on the erotic horror film. It's plenty bloody, but never scary and while there are bodies on display, it's not very erotic. Even if there is cannibalism (caused by a disease maybe?), it's very slow moving and pretty boring. Vincent Gallo has a very skeezy mustache. Beatrice Dalle was in "Betty Blue." Director Claire Denis is better known for high-brow stuff like "White Material" and "Beau Trevail." Yeah, super boring.
