May’s film is kind of a no brainer. If you haven’t seen it already, Gaspar Noé’s Enter The Void is a true treat for your eyes. Once again Noé has proved he is, in fact, an auteur. As a follow up to his previous film, Irreversible, he is once again showing us something we have never seen before. Just watching his opening credits says it alone!
FYI This is an Argentinian-born French filmmaker, with an American lead cast, shot in Japan. Not confusing, right? Didn’t think so.
Enter The Void was an official selection for Cannes, Toronto, Sundance, and SXSW, among other festivals. Afterward, it was picked up by IFC for theatrical distribution as well as On Demand viewing pleasure. I saw this on Halloween.
For your convenience, Enter The Void is available for streaming on Netflix, which is his theatrical version. Noé’s Director’s Cut, is available on DVD, and if you prefer his theatrical release that is also available on Blu-Ray! My preference is the theatrical release. And Noé claims to love both versions.
Warning, you’re in for a ride.
