Mongolian Barbecue

Director: Maximilian Le Cain

Mongolian Barbecue presents us with the edge of an abyss circumscribed by cinematic possession. The corporeal ritual involved falls at its ultimate climax into the rhythmical interstices of red frames that opens the way to static images from vampire B-movies, the feminine paradise a cinephile could encounter after taking a glimpse at cinema’s interior cavities. Mongolian Barbecue shares with much of Cork-based Le Cain’s prolific output (over 60 films in the past five years) the presence of TV static and the use of sounds that directly refer to medium specificity.
