"A daring, thrilling…wondrous film. With this movie Noé jumps to the front rank… right next to David Lynch."—Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
One of the most anticipated cinematic events of the year, Gaspar Noe's Enter the Void is a visionary cinematic thrill ride that's riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance, and SXSW film festivals.
At Cannes, Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called it "pure cinema and an exceptional work" and continued: "What largely distinguishes it, beyond the stunning cinematography, is that this is the work of an artist who’s trying to show us something we haven't seen before.… Mr. Noé, in other words, gets into your body..." The long-awaited follow up to Noé's controversial Irreversible, Enter the Void is a cinematic roller-coaster ride that, according to Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com, "represents a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling and is one of the most mind-blowing and ambitious feature films ever made." Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in the visceral journey, set against the thumping, neon club scene of Tokyo, which hurls the viewer into an astonishing trip through life, death, and the universally wonderful and horrible moments between. (137 mins., 35mm)
