Bertrand Bonello’s opium-soaked, time-collapsing fever dream of a Parisian brothel caught between the 19th and 20th centuries emerges like the lovechild of Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Flowers of Shanghai and Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. Screening on 35mm for the first time in years, House of Tolerance is, among other things: one opulent image after another, a supreme and startling use of music, and his most loving lens on the female form. A shocking mutilation, a gleefully anachronistic dance to the Moody Blues, drugs and sex and astonishing split-screens and flights of fancy that climax with an entirely unprecedented final minute––Bonello captures all with both inebriated detachment and total precision, cementing his place among the greatest living filmmakers.
