Drama
Gaspar Noé is more stoned than you’ll ever be. And this latest excursion into the French filmmaker’s personal, almost private sphere of intellectualized pulp may be his most eye-popping yet, the story of a twentysomething pair of uneasy American siblings named Linda (Paz de la Huerta) and Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) and their rough night in Tokyo. It contains some of the most astoundingly trippy visuals to ever hit theater screens, with the camera CGI-floating over buildings and in and out of flashbacks, culminating in a tour-de-force strobe-o-scopic exploration of a love hotel. The scenario may be piecemeal-sensational but the sensory experience is nonpareil. And both de la Huerta and Brown turn in emotionally credible performances as the stripper sister and her drug-dealing brother. Is Enter the Void a wrenching metaphorical adventure in perception or a Reefer Madness for our times? Or is it, as Noé calls it, a “psychedelic melodrama”? Let’s hedge our bets and say that it’s all of the above. An unforgettable experience that must be seen on the big screen. (154 min.)
