    Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres) is a stylish Belgian crime thriller set in Spain, and consequently springing off Sergio Leone's spaghetti western experimentations and into a surreal abyss. Leone meets Bunuel maybe. And yet, it has stylistic touches all its own. The slim plot concerns a band of thieves stealing a gold shipment then holing up, now without incident, in ruins inhabited by complicit anarchic artists. Adding to the feast for eyes and ears are the latter's waking visions, often involving a Goddess figure that, by the end, may seem to take an actual hand in the proceedings, depending on how you interpret it. At the same time, the lurid flick acts as an experiment in editing, doubling back on itself frequently to multiply points of view through a time stamp conceit that works reasonably well. A sizzling and exciting piece of movie making that takes no prisoners and bars no holds. 2 years 4 months ago

    Using the best parts of 70-80's exploitation, developing it and making pure cinephile porn of it. Every cut and sequence is inspired. 3 years 4 months ago
