Claire Denis’ super odd version of Billy Budd, which (unfortunately, I can hear Mr. C say) contains some of Benjamin Britten’s tuneless opera of the same name (although, to be fair, it sorta works here). French Foreign Legionaires exercise, fight, iron shirts, and not much else under the Djibouti sun. Mesmerizing, elliptical. Very strange ending too.
