What about Nolan's Memento? Fellow Frenchman Gaspar NoÈ's controversial IrrÈversible? The UK Observer's Phillip French conjures a half-baked history of movie storytelling in flashback in order to create some context for his review of Francois Ozon's half-baked 5 x 2.
I've remained a faithful fan of Ozon's work, which can be unsettling and brilliant at best. But after Sitcom, 8 Women Water Drops on Burning Rocks [granted, from Fassbinder's play] and now, apparently, 5 x 2, I'm giving up on expecting any significant, much less realistic, subtle, or nuanced treatment of human emotions, families, and relationships. Ozon's becoming the creepier version of the tired cliche of French auteurism.
