    An unbearable exercise in provocation. show more

    Enter the Void inspires ambivalence. Aside from its technical brilliance, it is an experience equally sublime and infuriating, revelatory and painful, ecstatic and terrifying. show more

    Many flashbacks to the children's early trauma, along with other scenes, are unnecessarily repeated several times. show more

    Confrontational and hyperactive, Enter the Void is a difficult film to experience. That's not because Noe is somehow inept. The Argentina-born French writer-director knows exactly what he's doing and what effect his swirling camera, exuberant colors and strobelike effects will have. show more

    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. show more

    As pure, outlandish outlaw cinema it's undeniable. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    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. show more

    A strong contender for both the artiest drug movie and the druggiest art movie ever made, Gaspar Noé's tour de force of forced perspectives and free-form grief is, in every sense of the word, a trip. show more

    Painting from a typical kaleidoscopic canvas Noé crafts a brain-bendingly metaphysical trip that definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea. show more

    This movie is truly an experience. There's a stigma that you have to be high to watch it. While that does enhance the movie and take it to a whole different level (especially the transitional scenes), it's one hell of a movie sober as well. I can honestly say I've never seen a movie like this...and I say that in a very good way.
