Enter the Void (2009)

Original Large Theatrical Movie Poster Art Cinema Film 2009 Enter The VoidArgentine film director/screenwriter Gaspar Noé is the man who has brought us I Stand Alone (1998), Irréversible (2002) and Enter the Void (2009). All three are exceptional films, each very different from one other.

Enter the Void, as Noé puts it, is a ‘psychedelic melodrama’. It is heavily influenced by experimental cinema and Noé’s own experiences with psychedelic drugs. As a viewer, you need to give this one time, patience and an open mind, in order to soak up and make sense of its bizarre collage of colourful sights and story lines.

Bathed in the sights and sounds of Tokyo’s neon-lit clubbing venues, Enter the Void follows one individual’s journey through a night crammed with significant experiences. The film is shot entirely from this one person’s viewpoint… but that is sure not to be exactly what you expected!

Enter the Void is a piece of art; an instant cult classic; something you have never seen before. This is a film which will greatly reward your patience. Its imagery will be burnt onto your mind forever, and what at first felt like a very long 2 hour and 43 minutes will develop into a great sense of awe and satisfaction.

  1. An absolute must being very stoned to watch (and keep up with) this. Worth the experience, not a masterpiece though. Peace out
