Movie

 

"Tarantino vibes permeate this amusing, at times outlandish tale of a couple of beauties getting mixed up with a deadly gambling ring."

With a glaringly self aware, idiosyncratic dark comedy vibe reminiscent of the likes of Tarantino or Soderbergh (after a few espresso shots), NUT$ is a non-stop, high stakes high octane ride that pops with the action-packed, sexy intrigue of OCEAN’S 11. Arguably the penultimate emblem of filmmaker Henri Bargès penchant for over-the-top, soulful spectacle to date – who has directed everything from Cannes/Sundance selects to Toyota, Samsung, and Pepsi commercials – NUT$ generates an eclectic tonality that’s exhilarating inasmuch as it is concerned with questions of gender, identity, and self-empowerment, conveyed by poker genius Lana’s (Darine Hamze) efforts to navigate the pressures of a male-dominated (under)world filled with controlling, lurking men and grander societal expectations to be a “normal” housewife. Teeming with femme fatales, mobsters, and a twinge of BDSM fun: Bargès’ latest is sure to please… just don’t forget your seatbelt.
