Atom User Reviews for Titane
I saw the trailer for this and didn’t know anything about the film so I went in blind. I just left the theater and I still don’t know what it’s about LOL
I get. I really get it, but I couldn't stand any of the characters. I can deal with pretentious art house film, but I can't handle unlikeable characters and unsettling moments that fail to drive the story. Thanks for making me cringe without a pay off. Next time, I'll just scratch a chalk board at home for free.
'Titane' is an unconventional rollercoaster that comes to an almost sudden climax. It's fairly original, oftentimes disturbing, and an ambitious vehicle for everyone involved. It's not a film I'd recommend, but I enjoyed it. If you don't like the brand of unconventional filmmaking such as 'Neon Demon', 'Holy Motors', or 'RAW', definitely skip this feature. If you do, however, definitely give it a shot, and go in with an open mind. Either way, you're in for an experience.
It’s a film that’s at its best when things matter and you’re empathizing even during moments of total butchery. It’s never easy to inject humanity into inhumane acts, yet Titane, like the metal, manages to do something remarkably strong in a compact form.
While Titane wants to shock and surprise — two things a lot of contemporary films seem to have forgotten how to do — it also wants to tell the strangely affecting story of two royally f***ed up human beings who, despite all the odds, and lack of shared DNA, share a father-son like bond.
By the time we reach an apocalyptic payoff, Titane has skated on and off the rails several times, with insouciant abandon. You miss the combination of bravado and control that made Raw work so well, but the deranged cocktail of outrage, excess, conceptual ferocity and sheer silliness on display here will make you gasp – and occasionally flinch.
