A Hole In My Heart


Lukas Moodysson's fourth theatrically released feature largely split critics into two camps: Hatred and Utter Contempt. They're wrong, even if this is hardly Together 2. Two men and a woman shoot DIY porn in a flat, while a teenager mopes in his bedroom listening to experimental slop. They're all desperate to connect; desperate to feel alive. As is, it seems, the director, for this is one long howl at pop-cultural overload: porno exploitation and the thirst for fame. Astonishingly aggressive (surgery shots of a labia being reshaped and the oddly distressing sight of Barbie dolls being butchered), Hole is an angry prayer: Ecclesiastes rewritten by the Marquis de Sade.
