TITANE: A metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility. Genre phenom Julia Ducournau’s explosive and uncategorizable follow-up to her cannibal cringe fest RAW plays out like a 21st century milkshake of David Cronenberg and Shinya Tsukamoto. To get into any more details would spoil the exquisite and unique strangeness of the experience. Winner: Palme d’Or, Cannes 2021.
“Ducournau's filmmaking is as pure as her themes are profane: to add insult to the very many injuries inflicted throughout, TITANE is gorgeous to look at, to listen to, to obsess over, and fetishize…. TITANE is coming, and it’s coming to fuck you up.” - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist “Following the cannibalistic RAW with another ravenous film that pushes her fascination with the hunger and malleability of human flesh to even further extremes, Ducournau has made good on the promise of her debut and then some…. And, lest it need to be said, this is a movie that needs to be seen on a big screen with even bigger sound and a screaming crowd surrounding you on all sides.” —David Ehrlich, IndieWire
