This review is from: Irreversible [DVD]  (DVD)
I watched this film 3 weeks ago, and I'm still thinking about it. It is very uncomfortable to watch like the previous reviews on here state. The camera angles, lighting, sound, dialogue, the storey line and the credits are all are designed to make you feel uncomfortable. I couldn't watch it in one sitting, as there's just too much horribleness. I needed to watch something light and funny just to reach an equilibrium in my mind, before watching more.
To say it's 'Coward's Porn that lacks balls' is so wrong. If a someone can crack one off to this film, then they should go and place themselves on a register.
The rape scene is utterly horrid, but to shoot it in any other way would be wrong.
I think the film suits being in reverse chronology as I would have forgotten the start of the story due to the impact of the middle and ending.
I cant give it 5 stars as it really made me feel sick with the spinning cameras.
