Enter the Void
Director: Gaspar Noe
Screenwriters: Gaspar Noe
Visionary filmmaker Gaspar NoÃ©'s reputation as a provocateur and master technician is sure to be solidified by Enter the Void, a cinematically audacious exploration of the connected nature of sex, drugs, life, and death.
Oscarâ€™s a small-time drug dealer. One night he is caught in a police bust and shot. As he lies dying, his spirit, faithful to the promise he made his sisterâ€”that he would never abandon herâ€”refuses to leave the world of the living. It wanders through the city, its visions growing ever more distorted and nightmarish. Past, present, and future merge in a hallucinatory maelstrom.
Words cannot describe the visually rich and assaulting epic tale of death and its aftermath of memories and spiritual travel that unfolds. Through sheer cinematic wizardry, NoÃ© has created the equivalent of a mind-bending trip. The graphic sexual and violent content is integral to the ideas in the film but may prove shocking to some. Like life and death, Enter the Void at your own risk.
