Irréversible

Gaspar Noé France , 2002

El Biffo's rating of the film Irreversible

"A kick in the gut" would be a complete understatement. Gaspar Noe is the next Goddard, and cinematographer Benoit Debie is amazing. You can see Debie's unique, inventive style in "Innocence", "Spring Breakers" and in this film, all of which are heavily influenced by his original technique: hallways, corridors, weird lighting.WARNING: Without a doubt, this film has the most brutal rape scene in the history of cinema.
