75) Demonlover (2002) Dir: Olivier Assayas Date Released: September 19, 2003 Date Seen: February 25, 2012 Rating: 4.25/5
I fucking loved it, right down to the weird X-Men references, which are presumably Assayas's weird way of saying that the lead heroine's conception of herself as a superheroine are, as she eventually discovers, totally unfounded. She's an X-Man (she winds up dressed-up in a blue-and-yellow uniform in the end and is even described by that young Hellfire Club user as Storm). But she's also an attraction in the Hellfire Club. I love that! I love that the subtext of this movie is basically: heterogeneity is a giant fucking smoke screen! ARRRGH, love it.
