Coup de Torchon

"Uh... is the answer, "yes?" №¢

Well, well, well. Bertrand Tavernier's strange flick about a french sheriff of a small West African town beats the band. What you'll notice first when you pop this one in is the highly intense intro score which covers a scene which is anything but intense. I mean, it's almost ridiculous, just like the main character as he bumbles through his life. He stops looking ridiculous after he's killed a few people in cold blood. A bizarre and eerie tale. Psychologically disconnected. I still don't know what I think of it...

Favorite Moment: The pimp in the outhouse.
