“Titane” has had a tremendous amount of buzz since its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where it went on to win the coveted Palme d’Or. Since then, it has been mystifying, terrifying those who have dared to see it, and in some cases, causing audience members to faint during their screenings. Beneath all of the film’s more visceral moments, there is a sweetness that emerges, and it is here where the film’s storytelling becomes the most rewarding. Julia Ducournau’s follow-up film to “Raw” is uncompromising, with a clear directorial vision that’s one of the most unique and intense you’re likely to see this year. She needed a gifted actor who could commit to her vision, and she knew that with Vincent Lindon, her work would be in good hands. Both Julia and Vincent were kind enough to spend some time talking with me about working together, what the film means to them, and more! Take a listen down below, be sure to check out the film before listening (this is a movie that demands you to avoid spoilers at any cost), and enjoy!
