FAME Recommends: Enter The Void

Enter The Void is the highly anticipated new film from Gaspar Noe’ (SEUL CONTRE TOUS, IRREVERSIBLE), the former enfant terrible of French Cinema.A filmmaker of a singular passion and cinematic vision that continues to challenge us, Noe’ is one of the most exciting directors working today.

The provocative director’s latest work is a visually arresting and audacious ‘psychedelic melodrama’ of familial ties, inner consciousness and the circle of life played out against the neon- soaked backdrop of Tokyo’s nightscape of strip bars, clubs, and seedy hangouts, all lit up like a pinball machine.Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) and his sister Linda (Paz de la Huerta) are recent arrivals in Tokyo. Oscar’s a small-time drug dealer, and Linda works as a nightclub stripper.

One night, Oscar is caught up in a police bust and shot. As he lies dying, his spirit, faithful to the promise he made his sister as a child – that he would never leave her – refuses to abandon the world of the living. His spirit hovers over the city, wandering the streets and passing through the boundaries of various apartments, nightclubs and
hotel rooms.
His visions grow evermore nightmarish and distorted as past, present and future merge in a hallucinatory maelstrom.

ENTER THE VOID is the ultimate head trip, a distinctive and highly original film that fully immerses the audience into the sensory world and experiences of its characters, straight into the void between life and death.

Lauded as a work of Pure Cinema, ENTER THE VOID is Noe’s most mature and fully realised work to date.
