    French director Gaspar Noe has kept a pretty low profile since his 2002 drama "Irreversible" notorious for its brutal nine-minute anal rape scene. But this epic, psychedelic mindfuck confirms him once again as the cinema's most imaginative nihilist.
  2. Suffice to say, unrelenting material like this isn't for everybody. That it is a gloriously filmic gesture - by turns jaw-dropping, elusive, silly, obnoxious, painful and beautiful - is celebration enough.

    A picture that's by turns inventive, tender and boring, and one that uses a variety of novelty point-of-view techniques: If Penisvision isn't your thing, then Vagin-o-rama just might float your boat.
  4. 75
    From the rapid-fire, purposely unreadable opening credits to the final baby POV shot of a birth, this is a dazzling and brutal exercise in cinematic envelope-pushing.
  5. A mash-up of the sacred, the profane, and the brain-dead, Enter the Void is addictive.
  6. Director Gaspar Noé proved a shock poet in "Irreversible" (2003). In Enter the Void, he's a shockingly tedious show-off.
  7. An unbearable exercise in provocation.

The film is not linear, its not cohesive and by god it makes littel to no sense most of the time. That all said and done, it feels amazing. When you watch this film, it does what any great film should, it takes you away. It wipes clean everything else and transports you to a fantastic place. Its a melodrama so don't expect the acting to be top notch, but it doesnt matter. The way its told, the way its edited and then presented is stunning. Along with Children of God this is the best movie of the last decade. Even at its two and a half hour run time it hooks you till the end. It takes you away from whatever world you currently preside in and show you a tale of love and loss like little else that has ever been shown. If you love art and film this is a must see film. JUst one warning, don't watch it stoned. Expand

A completely brilliant piece of visual art. The strangest part is that it actually succeeds in drawing a narrative from a largely wordless, largely abstract series of gorgeous camera stunts. The opening credits alone will draw applause in a movie theater (they did when I went). And, even if you find yourself frustrated by certain aspects of the movie, you will still be blown away by the way it looks. This is one of the most beautifully shot films in history. The cinematographer was Marc Caro from Amelie and City of Lost Children fame. This is easily the best looking movie he's ever been a part of, and that's saying A LOT. This is a completely unique experience, though admittedly not for everyone. Expand

ThatWhen I saw this film, I expected it to be a huge cultural phenomenon.. I expected it to change the film industry and to become legendary. That didn't happen. But the potential is still within the film and within you, if it hits you. If you're in your early twenties and/or at film school, this one has the potential to change things. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. First movie I've seen (and I've seen a bunch) that shows me an actual abortion, a penis going into a vagina and ejaculating (viewed from inside the woman's body), and a dead guy's spirit inhabiting the bodies of different dudes so he can have sex with his sister, mother, and his best friend's mother. What's with all the shiny crap between all the people getting it on? Looks like bioluminescence..... Expand

It's a little messed up and for certain reasons the sound levels are annoying as **** The whole thing is also really dragged out. Some scenes are so long yet they are so boring. Most the acting is poor. The sex scenes were more interesting than the movie, and the characters are entirely forgettable. Actually, you pretty much know nothing about the characters besides how their lives became entwined. Unfortunately, this movie was depressing, so I can't even be bothered to figure out what is it about. I just don't give a **** I have no idea why anybody would actually want to watch it. Expand
