Tempting Devils

Tempting Devils ★★★½

Being my first Brisseau (his final film, probably not the best place to start), I find its affinity to Eugene Green's recent films shot on low-budget digital. Both are trying to find enlightenment through their specific measures. In Brisseau's case, it's sex and spiritual detachment. Even by his notorious reputation, his film is gentler than I imagined, the gratuitous sex scenes actually bring positive energy.

From what I've read on his works, the ending shot might be a great summation to his interest in mysticism.
