Laissez bronzer les cadavres in the Top 50 films of 2017 of Crossfader Magazine

Get ready to be blinded by a ballet of bullets dipped in acid. French experimental filmmaking duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani give us a FREE FIRE-esque shootout through a heavily stylized new wave filter that would make Seijun Suzuki dizzy. It may seem like a feature-length action scene with barely a minute or two of breathing room, but it’s definitely a ride worth taking. Following a nonlinear, time stamp-filled narrative about a single day’s deadly quest for a stolen pile of gold, nearly every frame of LET THE CORPSES TAN surprises with visual glee. Playing like a round of TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX SIEGE on LSD, any angle, corner turn, or even reflection could mean life or death for our eccentric lady Luce (“light”), the estate owner, and the various armed thieves hiding in plain sight. Light itself plays just as big a role as guns and is presented with just as much hairpin precision. It’s guaranteed to cause some audiences to perspire, if not throw in the towel out of exhaustion, but for those who thought Wheatley’s and Tarantino’s kills have been a little bland as of late, this one’s for you.
