Demonlover: Assayas’s radical, thought-provoking cyber-thriller depicts the international aristocracies of capitalism in the early 2000s and their amoral double agents. Connie Nielsen stars as a ruthless executive at an internet company, where her insatiable ambition situates her in a bloody corporate conflict for illicit 3D manga pornography. Featuring a deranged ambient score by Sonic Youth and an international cast including Gina Gershon, Chloë Sevigny, and Charles Berling, Demonlover twists the conventions of the espionage thriller into a perceptive indictment of cyber culture and the entrepreneurs who exploit it. A 2003 Film Comment Selects selection. New 2K restoration of the unrated director’s cut supervised by Olivier Assayas. A Janus Films release.
