I cannotI saw this film at Cannes 2009, to my awe, moviegoers either fell asleep or left the screening. I forced myself through it. I cannot understand the high ratings nor why Gaspar Noe would overindulge with such sloppy editing. For me it was way Over the void.

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. Full Review »

There's a hint of a plot, but the dazzling drug-induced hallucinations, amazing bird's eye view sequences and compelling situations combine to create a uniquely-brilliant experience. It is a bit too long and repetitious, but worth the commitment. Full Review »
