When writer Chloe Aridjis curates the Tate retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, an elusive, brooding man appears, seeming to offer more. Enabled by the artworks’ defiant mystery, Chloe pursues him. But as she descends into a world of obsession, is she hunter or hunted? A darkly romantic enactment of a woman going beyond societal norms, it puts on screen the lurid unconscious of our new sexual politics. Featuring the Volksbuhne’s Marc Hosemann, appearances from cultural figures like Juliet Jacques, Marina Warner, Adam Thirlwell, Stewart Home and Tom McCarthy, scored by Andy Cooke with new music from TEARIST and electronica originators O.M.D., Female Human Animal also pays homage to its guiding feminist spirit, the iconic artist and writer Leonora Carrington.

Intriguing But Hollow, Though Maybe That’s The Point
I was intrigued by this because of the poster and its description as both a ‘documentary’ AND ‘thriller’*, so went into it with no further knowledge. I liked that it appears to have been shot on some form of low-resolution video, which gives it an unusually archaic and low-fi quality that cannot help but stand out in 2019, although on the downside can also make it look quite cheap and amateurish.
The story follows Chloe, the almost archetypal metropolitan art-world woman: pale, harried, neurotic, feminist, sexless and over-40, committed only to her cat, attending nightly book readings with the obligatory trans authors and insufferable wine-drinking bores. She begins to see around her a somewhat bizarre man who it seems she is attracted to because he reminds her of the paintings and intense relationship of the 1930s painter Leonora Carrington, who she is so obsessed by. Is he even real?
In some ways reminiscent of Polanski’s ‘Repulsion’ and other 60s films about crumbling female psyches, it never really approaches those heights or says anything clearly and memorably of its own, except perhaps how increasingly violent women’s sexual fantasies are becoming, so its final impression is really just one of distracted whimsy. The main character is good, but the rest of the cast are sometimes distractingly amateurish, and the incessantly whistling male love-interest is never remotely realistic enough to make us think he is anything but Chloe’s twisted fantasy.
On the level of a student film it’s nice enough though, and I appreciate it reaching for something even if it didn’t get there.
*(let’s be honest, it’s neither).
Smart and Creepy Female Human Animal
Smart, creepy and unknown; That is just a few words to describe this psychthriller that flew under everyone’s radar when it was released back in 2018. This mind-bending movie written and directed by Josh Appignanesi. The film follows a writer by the name of Chloe Aridjis (She is playing herself) who is curating an art exhibition for the artist Leonora Carrington. But a strange borderline sinister looking man comes to the exhibition. Chloe starts to follow him, and she starts to develop an obsession and the question is if the man has good or bad intentions and if Chloe is being hunted or even perhaps becoming the hunter. It is shot on a 80’s style V/H/S/ camera which helps build the tension as it feels like we are inside of Chloe’s broken mind.
As it was shot on an 80’s V/H/S/ camera that meant less chances to get beautiful and as it is a thriller creepy shot. So, the writer and director had to put hidden meanings in the film so you as an audience can watch it more than once and still enjoy it because your discovering different things. For example, the use of plastic, plastic is everywhere in this film, the foreground and background hell a character wears plastic as a mask near the end (it is forcibly) But the use of plastic can be seen as symbolism for Chloe. She sees what she wants, its right Infront of her but when she tries to get it she gets trapped and unable to get what she wants so she’s stuck in her own life.
Now if you know your history you will know this one, In this movie the name Ludwig is brought up a in the movie as it is the name of Chloe’s cat. The name Ludwig should ring bells to any historians out there because the name Ludwig Borchadt was a German Egyptologist. Ludwig was famous for discovering the world famous bust of Nefertiti. I bet your wondering how this relates to the story well Lwdig was the name of Chloe’s cat. The Egyptians believed that cats were magical creatures, they believed that they were capable of brining good luck to their owners. Judging by what we see of Chloe’s life and what she goes through throughout this movie well we see that this isn’t the case.
Now another reason why this piece of information is important to the movie is that Nefertiti is an Egyptian goddess and the name its self means “A Beautiful Woman Has Come” and with that line it can show the arc that Chloe goes on throughout this film where she starts off anti-social and lonely but then with all that stalking and almost dying; when she suffocated the Man and bashed his skull in which a rock she went out and sung karaoke. If that isn’t a story arc of an independent women, I don’t know what is.
Overall it is a creepy and fun movie to watch if you are a fan of horrors/thrillers, it is low budget and sort of reminded me of 70’s grindhouse movies so if you don’t mind a little static on the screen through out then this is perfect for you. Intriguing plot, twists and turns throughout to keep you guessing with an ending that leaves you guessing.
