“The wildest Palme d’Or winner ever — Following the cannibalistic Raw with another ravenous film that pushes her fascination with the hunger and malleability of human flesh to even further extremes, [director-screenwriter Julia] Ducournau has made good on the promise of her debut and then some. Whatever you’re willing to take from it, there’s no denying that Titane is the work of a demented visionary in full command of her wild mind; a shimmering aria of fire and metal that introduces itself as the psychopathic lovechild of David Cronenberg’s Crash and Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo: The Iron Man before shapeshifting into a modern fable about how badly people just need someone to take care of them and vice-versa. —

The magic of Titane is also owed to the grace with which Ducournau threads the needle between clarity and madness, shock and recognition, throttle and clutch.” – David Ehrlich / IndieWire
