Two by Bertrand Bonello

His first films appearing at the turn-of-the-millennium heyday of New French Extremity, Bonello is a writer-director whose work embraces elements of grindhouse transgression and arthouse formalism, with a variegated filmography that can encompass both a sensitive concert film like "Ingrid Caven: Music and Voice" and a gelid terror attack thriller/consumerist satire like "Nocturama"—two key films in one of the finest bodies of work in French cinema over the last quarter century.
