Gaspar Noé Prancis, 2018

J. O.'s rating of the film Climax

Vapid degenerates tear themselves apart. Loved it as a landscape of hell – the neon lights burning, the camera spinning through narrow hallways, the screaming, the crying, the modern dance. Though too self-indulgent towards the end, the final moments of ecstasy and horror were particularly irritating and anti-climactic (go figure). The vague political commentary seemed like an afterthought - flimsy and meaningless.
