I Stand Alone

1998 NR

Philippe Nahon stars as an unnamed butcher teetering on the edge of hopelessness in this disturbing drama directed by Gaspar Noé. Just released from prison, the butcher struggles to find employment but is met with one closed door after another. Angry and frustrated, he lashes out at those around him with horrific force, aching to be heard. The film took home the Critics Week Award at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
