"The follow-up to Antonio Campos' critically acclaimed Afterschool, Simon Killer is an erotic and and psychological portrait of Simon (Brady Corbet, Melancholia, Martha Marcy May Marlene), a well-educated, handsome and seemingly sympathetic college graduate with just a hint of something off putting enough to ignite a sense of concern. Recently heartbroken, Simon travels to Paris to clear his head. After several days of wandering aimlessly, Simon finds himself drawn into a sex parlor and has a sexual encounter with an exotic prostitute, Victoria (Mati Diop, 35 Shots of Rum). The chemistry builds between the two until they find themselves in a serious relationship, one that leads to blackmail, betrayal and the ultimate revelation of Simon's true nature. "

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though the film's ice-cold blend of the cerebral and the atavistic can be off-putting, it enables a queasy portrait of moral disengagement that lingers long after Simon has slipped from the screen.
Fresh: This noncommittal technique, relying on a combination of audience projection and unknowable complexity, defies the old-fashioned pleasure of peeling the onion of character psychology, but rewards those willing to read between the lines.
Fresh: It is brutally raw and difficult watching.
Rotten: Sort of "An American Psycho's European Vacation," this indie dramatic thriller mixes sex and violence and still winds up dull.
