You came during the rape scene?
I've seen this movie eleven years ago, it continues to be part of my psyche. of course there were extremely horrid scenes(rape, fight scene) also there was beauty. Life is filled with all that brutal, beautiful symphony. the director was clever by giving the audience all the bad shit first and we can have a happy ending.
There are three films that moved me; I’m talking about emotionally and physically and “Irreversible” is one of them. Living in NYC, the brutality and the realism of the crime hits home. Surrealism (camera movement and editing) makes this film a powerful work of art. But, “Enter the Void” wasn’t in the same classification as“Irreversible”.
Je n'ai vu ce film qu'une seule fois, mais il a complètement changé la façon dans laquelle je pense à la violence. Le style du film est radical car il est fait à l'envers, mais ce qui choque le plus dans ce film c'est le viol contre la femme. Dans les médias, on oublie ce que "viol" veut dire; on oublie le poids de ce mot. Noé montre bien comment qu'une seule action peut changer plusieurs vies.
One of the most vicious films ever made. There is something strikingly odd in calling this film beautiful, but if you look at all the areas it examines, from animal urges to blatant madness, teamed up with a constantly-moving camera, one could really get something out of this film. If they can sit still through the whole thing. It also conjures up crackpot theories. Mine: This is a film about the child from 2001...
Assuming you mean his little cameo in "The Rectum", I read that he did it as a way of downplaying any negative blowback the portrayal of the garrish homosexual antagonist le Tenia would bring, so as not to give the impression he saw himself as "superior to gays." But I wonder if that even occurs to anybody once they see him doing that...
I don't even know how to rate or review this, except to say that it's completely and utterly unforgettable.
A brilliant mindfuck, brutal and brilliant, leaves no space for you to take a breath and relax. I hate it but I love it at the same time? How the scene changes is what impresses me the most. Rectum party time!
this film made my stomach turn over. this film made me dizzy. this film made me look away. from the opening credits to the very end, this film had me on edge and my pulse thumping. I was totally enthralled with the cinematography and time-switching methods. it left me confused but satisfied all the same. Gaspar Noe is nothing short of fantastic.
Banal, philosophically one-dimensional, aggressive in it's stupidity. a cinematic jackass stunt, and a failed stunt at that. johnny knoxville thought the bull would be more agitated. a whining, miserable whelp of a film.
