Trouble Every Day

I’m currently writing a monograph on Trouble Every Day (2001), directed by Claire Denis, for Devil’s Advocates, a series dedicated to genre cinema.

Trouble Every Day is as beautiful as it is brutal, an exploration of violence, passion and desire. It is certainly a challenging film, but one that deserves to be reassessed, both for its thematic concerns as well as Denis’ visceral visual aesthetic (crafted with her frequent collaborator, cinematographer Agnès Godard).

This book considers how Trouble Every Day reflects the darkness of the world we live in, exploring desire, fantasy and autonomy in a compelling cinematic experience that beguiles and violates.
