Black Moon

Louis Malle directs this avant-garde film where a young woman stumbles upon some surreal happenings during a war between the sexes at a remote estate. Featuring badgers, millipedes, talking animals, and armed women in gas masks, Black Moon is a tedious post-Nouvelle Vague Alice In Wonderland. Beautifully shot, it's impenetrable, precious, and tries its best to shock, but at 100 minutes it stumbles around a little too long and bores. The lead actress runs from one scene to another, Joe Dallesandro manages to actually act and keep his pants on, and this viewer wonders what it's all about.
