Calvaire (2004)

The boys are staying international this week, flying over to France to discuss Calvaire (The Ordeal), Fabrice Du Welz's contribution to the New French Extremity movement of the 2000s. Could they have discussed High Tension? Sure, but what fun would it be to make you watch a movie you've already seen?

Topics at hand are the film's bestiality set piece, a rather intense (and rare) scene of male-on-male rape, modern-day crucifixions, kooky impromptu polka dances and the political origins of the New French Extremity movement.

On a lighter note: Trace struggles to use his tongue properly in a poor attempt at a French accent, Joe declares the film's protagonist to be "a hole" and they both attempt to decipher what an American remake would look like.
