Trailer of the Day: Trouble Every Day


“A hard-hitting mélange of science fiction, body horror, and AIDS allegory, TROUBLE EVERY DAY is perhaps Denis’s most underappreciated work. Although the film’s apparent coldness and glimpses of carnal savagery immediately marked it as a controversial aberration in Denis’s oeuvre, it is perhaps best understood as an important, albeit darker, variation of the restless, lonely searching for connection between people that remains the central theme of Denis’s work. While the film centers upon the relationship between an American and a French vampire, Denis’s real interest is not in the trappings of genre, whether mad-doctor imaginings or bloodshed, but in the limits of love, sex, and forgiveness.”—Harvard Film Archive (101 mins.)

TROUBLE EVERY DAY screens on Sunday, May  5 at 4:30p.m. and Friday, May 10 at 7p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Claire Denis retrospective, THE LYRICAL SPACE OF CLAIRE DENIS.
