Fly

A classic among the classics of fantasy cinema, La Mouche has transformative scenes that are not only impressive for the time, but also disturbing, and question our relationship to appearance. With this film, director David Cronenberg continues to explore one of his favorite themes: the metamorphosis of bodies. Fly is therefore unsurprisingly one of the jewels of the “body-horror” genre, where the horrific effect comes from the transformation or degeneration of the physical body. Jeff Goldblum pays with his person and soon finds himself prisoner of an animal body … disturbing!

Night Shyamalan succeeds in creating anxiety in the spectator, who soon finds himself as frightened as the main characters of the film (played by Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix and Cherry Jones). With a minimalist and efficient style, resting fear on subtly disseminated noises, the director offers a film that is not perfect, but well played, well edited and freaking out!

The village

An isolated village, a wood famous for sheltering strange creatures, a young woman determined to find out more, such are the ingredients of this fantastic thriller carried by Bryce Dallas Howard, Joaquin phoenix and again directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It is advisable not to reveal too much about the scriptwriting details of this Town which is of fascinating plastic beauty and tackles the subject of identity withdrawal and self-sufficiency to protect oneself from external dangers. The Village embodies the director’s reaction to America then traumatized by September 11, 2001 and inclined to attempt such a withdrawal. A film that thrills in both form and substance!
