Irréversible

Gaspar Noé France, 2002

J. O.'s rating of the film Irreversible

A masterful film that only improves with age. Though, it is a truly harrowing ordeal from start to finish - or would it be from finish to start? - it is worthwhile due to the beautiful, kinetic cinematography and meticulous editing highlighting the visceral performances. As we've come to expect from Noé, this is not for the faint of heart.
