Titane (2021) (a film mini-review by Mark R. Leeper and Evelyn C. Leeper).

Titane is a film of “body horror”, reminding one of much of David Cronenberg’s works, but particularly Videodrome.

Alexia (played by Agatha Rousselle) has to take great pains to disguise themself beyond what the viewer would expect, as the film examines not just questions of prosthetics and human-machine interactions, but also of gender as well.

This is one of the more original fugitive stories.

After seeing it, I said that it seemed ideal for the “Midnight Madness” track of the Toronto International Film Festival; upon checking, I discovered it was the closing film in that track this year.

That position is something of an honour.

Released theatrically 10/01/21; available on Amazon Prime.

Rating: +1 (-4 to 4) or 6/10.
