Movie Info

ENTER THE VOID, the psychedelic thriller by visionary French maverick Gaspar Noé (IRREVERSIBLE, I STAND ALONE), is a cinematic thrill ride that's riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals. Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in a visceral journey set against the thumping, neon club scene of Tokyo, which hurls the viewer into an astonishing trip through life, death, and the universally wonderful and horrible moments between. An immersive and just plain mind-bending experience, ENTER THE VOID is sure to be one of the most talked-about films of the year. -- (C) IFC

In visual terms, it's a whiz-bang marvel of swooping and soaring camera work and psychedelic imagery, lit by the gaudy fluorescence of Tokyo's seamier nightclubs.

If you yourself are stoked for a lurid, oversexed, stupid-with-Freud Midnight Movie extravaganza -- a trip to El Topo via Mulholland Drive -- there are worse ways to spend 2 1/2 hours.

"I hated that" will be a common refrain among people leaving showings of Enter the Void. Don't be surprised, though, if you find yourself still thinking about the movie the next day.

[It's] certainly an immersive experience that's decidedly difficult to shake. The problem is that it's also the most excruciating sit in recent cinematic memory.

As chowderheaded as some of its underlying pretensions are, the movie's still an astonishing work of cinema, alternately brilliant and disgusting, naïve and inspired, tedious and sublime.

Hallucinogenic, dazzling, depressing, daring and not entirely successful, "Enter the Void" is obviously out to blow some minds.

Audience Reviews for Enter the Void (Soudain le vide)


With this uncomfortable drug-like experience of strong colors and strobe lights, Gaspar Noé proves again that he is such an imaginative director, taking us with his subjective camera in a depressing psychedelic trip presented entirely from the point of view of its main character.

Quite possibly the most trippy and vividly realized films I've ever seen - Gaspar Noe's cinematographic flair is seizure-inducing yet absolutely stunning in scope. The same can be said for the film's plot - which is marvelous at points and nearly unwatchable at others. The film meanders and seems to lose sight in the last 20 minutes, but when the shocking ending arrives and the plot comes full-circle, you can let out a sigh of relief that it was all worth it.

Yes, we know that its 1h30min worth of repetitive scenes but thats also the beauty of it. Its art-house and not intended to a fast paced action film. In the right mood, this film is beautiful
