OUTSIDE SATAN (Bruno Dumont, 2011)

A peasant strolling through a paddock or a telegenic couple sunning by a motel pool - in Dumont's better films even the most mundane images become morbidly absorbing. A pervading sense of menace charges them - a sense that's missing here. Or it isn't missing entirely - it just feels artificial. Like self-parody.
