It’s Bresson’s The Devil, Probably (1977) by way of Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (1978), but the clothes, uneasy camaraderie, and needle drops are all Bonello.

As an in-the-moment viewing experience, Nocturama is a gut punch wrapped in a velvet glove; it’s so intensely visceral and visually impressive that it short-circuits interpretation. It all but dares you to dismiss it as a gorgeous stunt… But in retrospect, Bonello’s film is like one of those bullets that expands after it has penetrated its target, growing larger and sinking in more deeply until there’s no digging it out. The film is an exercise in style, yes, but its aesthetics are weaponized.

Bonello is a decadent movie poet of literal and emotional interiors with a uniquely cubist approach to both time and realism; his style is druggy and dreamlike because it’s so cornered, self-confined, self-refracting. In Nocturama, his radicalized night critters run free in the evacuated department store as he busts out one killer camera move after another to the best and most eclectic movie soundtrack in recent memory. If this is artistic self-indulgence, then please, please, let us have more.
