|Irreversible (2002) US One-Sheet|
As the film draws towards its conclusion the characters lives are investigated subtly as you time-travel to the beginning of their tragic day. Cassel and Belluci bring genuine romance to the screen with beautiful heartfelt conviction. Both actors are responsible for the production of the film and their passion for the project is evident in their much underrated and tremendously powerful performances.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is an obvious influence on Gasper Noe’s directorial capacity and Kubrik has continued to inspire his latest Enter the Void (2010). His style is suave and fluid and his experience as a music video director is utilised impeccably with a continual flawless fusion of haunting sounds and graphic imagery. Ultimately Irreversible is horrific, sickening and almost unbearable but if you are a fan of film then you must see it, if only to figure out why, once the film has finished, you are left with such a warm feeling inside your heart.
