Trouble Every Day


Dir. Claire Denis. 2001, 101 mins. New 35mm print courtesy of Film Desk. With Vincent Gallo, Tricia Vessey, Beatrice Dalle. Denis brings her brand of cinematic intimacy to the horror genre, and the result is, unsurprisingly, shocking. Trouble Every Day is a different kind of vampire movie, a vivid and sensuous—and very gory—tale of all-consuming seduction concerning a man and a woman infected with a sickness that conflates the urge for sex and blood. As tender as it is terrifying, Denis’s film is a remarkable plunge into carnality.
