48. Enter the Void

In Arthouse on August 4, 2011 at 8:31 AM

Dir. Gaspar Noé

A drug-dealing teen is killed in Japan, after which he reappears as a ghost to watch over his sister.

MY TAKE

I hated Irreversible, but Gaspar Noé redeems himself incredibly well here. Aside from the fact it’s a bit overlong, the sheer technical achievements and audacity of this film make it outstanding. I probably wouldn’t enjoy re-watching the whole thing, but I’ll be referencing it for a long time (especially the opening credit sequence).
