Gaspar Noe presents ENTER THE VOID: A challenging, mind-warping film. The ambitious writer/director infuses the picture with fluorescent colors and eerie moods reminiscent of the late Stanley Kubrik. In addition, his fascination with drug-addled, depraved souls and use of non-linear storytelling invokes Quentin Tarantino (minus all sense of humor). While ENTER THE VOID includes many disturbing moments (graphic sex, pulped car crash victims, aborted fetus close-ups, narcotic usage), it never approaches the haunting, unbearable brutality of Noe's last opus, IRREVERSIBLE, with its grisly head-bashing and rape scenes.

In spite of the major experimentalism, Noe manages to develop a crystal clear narrative thread and the whole psychedelic soap-opera comes together neatly. From start to finish, this VOID bursts with light, form and sound. Forget Who, What, When, Where and Why . . . ENTER THE VOID leaves one wondering "HOW?"

I just finished watching this film about ten minutes ago. I knew absolutely nothing about it before watching, which is a good thing. Therefore; I don't want to give any of the plot away. I will say that it's absolutely stunning from a technical point of view; horrifyingly disturbing at times; incredibly beautiful and joyous; terrifying, sleazy, psychedelic, difficult, long, arduous, and completely unforgettable. For me personally, it's one of the most intense cinematic experiences I've had since seeing 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you don't like experimental or unconvential films, avoid this; but if you're interested in what I said above, avoid spoilers and watch it immediately.

Watching Enter The Void the film that came to my mind most was Mirror [DVD] [1974], by Tarkovsky. Many film makers have tried to ape Tarkovsky. Most recently Lars von Triers with Antichrist [DVD] [2009], but have failed simply because they concentrate on technical aspects rather than the totality of the Master's approach.

Gaspard Noe has succeeded in creating a masterpiece. And it is a masterpiece that, like Mirror, sets it apart from any other cinematic experience. And he has done this by adopting an approach that is tied to a philosophy. It is irrelevant whether you agree with Noe or not: it is the end product that counts.

Against all my expectation, I found Enter The Void to be a film of sheer beauty. It also put his previous films in perspective and also suggests why, as with Tarkovsky, he takes his time over making his films.

If one looks at I Stand Alone [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (only available on US import so far) one sees how Noe uses the camera to hammer away at the individual and see the world through his eyes. Ultimately I Stand Alone is concerned with the individual. Irreversible [DVD] [2003] took the process one step further and the camera is used, in that film, to make sense of the narrow environment. The scenes that stand out, the rape and the beating, take place within enclosed environments.

Gaspar Noe's last film, 'Irreversible', chewed me up and spat me out. By playing the film in reverse, scene by scene, the viewer has little ability to form emotional opinions or attachments to the main characters in that film until its last scenes. By the end, when I finally realised where those emotional ties should be placed and how strong they should be, I was a broken man. I say this because if 'Enter The Void' lacks something, it's the film's inability to draw empathy from you for any of the characters - and I do mean any.

Despite the brother and sister leads having experienced extreme trauma at a young age, I felt no sympathy for them as adults. I concluded that this was intentional, by design, but couldn't fathom why? Was this to ensure I focused on the film's many other creative elements, or it's reincarnation-inspired journey through the death of the Oscar, aka the film's point of view, and the ripple effect that event had on those close to him. Or did the director determine that the characters in the film are the creators and masters of their own misery - was this a statement about the metropolis populous in general?

While the film is psychedelic in parts due to CGI imagery that starts during a drug experience by Oscar at the start of the film, I wouldn't want those thinking of watching 'Enter The Void' to consider the whole film as akin to watching 'Irreversible' while drug-fuelled, through a kaleidoscope. It's not. Tokyo adds much, naturally, in neon - having been there recently I can back that up. Plus there a small number of insertions of Art projects and the likes of the scene in the lighting store. Psychedelic? No, just visually stunning, throughout.

'Enter The Void' is my favourite film of the year.
