Enter the Void (2010)

Starring: Nathaniel Brown, Paz de la Huerta, Cyril Roy, Olly Alexander

Directed by: Gaspar Noe

UR. 137 mins.

An astonishing work of cinema that is tedious, yet sublime. Noe’s dazzling direction and stunning cinematography make it worth watching this imperfect, but inspired concept. Set in Tokyo’s oversexed and drug-fueled underworld, Enter the Void is a psychedelic trip through the life, death, and in between of Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), an addict who’s only saving grace is his sister Linda, a stripper. This film is exploitative and for the most part, uncomfortable to watch but if you can stick along for the ride, you’ll respect it whether you like it or not. This is like nothing you’ve ever seen and after you get over how depressing (and repetitive) it is, you’ll marvel the technical abilities and magical (far-reaching) concept – * * * 1/2
