A psychedelic melodrama by visionary French maverick Gaspar Noé
(IRREVERSIBLE), ENTER THE VOID is a cinematic thrill ride that’s tripped
out audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals.
Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) and his sister Linda (Paz de la Huerta of THE LIMITS OF CONTROL), separated as children when their parents were killed in a car crash, are re-united in Tokyo, where he’s a small-time drug dealer and she’s a stripper. One night Oscar is shot in a police raid, but true to a promise he made Linda as a child—that he would never leave her—he refuses to abandon the world of the living. His spirit hovers over the city, and we see events through his eyes. His visions grow ever more nightmarish and distorted, as past, present and future merge, allowing Noé full rein to experiment with the hallucinatory power of cinema.
New York and LA will be getting this one in theaters starting on September 24th, and it will expand in October. It will also be available on IFC’s On Demand service nationwide… but this really seems like the kind of film best experienced in a theater.
