Dir. Olivier Assayas (2002).
Ostentatiously set 15 minutes into the future, Olivier Assayass exercise in vidgame aesthetics and image circulation is a nastier version of his lovable Irma Vep. Demonlover takes a few cues from evil-media classic Videodrome but, however glitzy, clever, and luridly philosophical, this is mainly an old-fashioned thriller.
