Noé weaves together the off-putting elements into something that sears itself permanently in the memory.

Contains crippling, extended acts of sexual violence and general inhumanity, yet, under the bleeding rawness of it all, was a film of brilliant technical achievement and unrivaled, unrelenting ferocity.

The film is almost unwatchable at the beginning, but the chaos and horror of the swinging camera stabilizes, the film becomes more structured and horrifying long after the cinematic devices calm down.

Me? I'm going to go watch "The Brady Bunch" to wash these images out of mind. And, I'm going to withstand the fury of those who decide I'm a squeamish wimp.

While Noé's vision can seem unrelentingly sadistic and sexist, the film's raw emotion keeps it afloat.

Audacious it may be, Irreversible carries so little meaning, it plays like a self indulgent experiment, with barely a decent line of dialogue or anything discernible to say.

Es difícil recordar otra experiencia tan perturbadora, en la que los recursos de lenguaje colocan al espectador en un estado sensorial difícil de explicar con palabras.

Despite the gut-wrenching gimmickry (and Monica Belluci hanging out in her birthday suit), Irreversible is almost Irredeemable

The detached clinical methodical style of some reptilian film critics since its release scrutinize the positioning of the camera in the rape scene-- almost like an autopsy.

While this movie does not encourage repeat viewing, those film fans who can steel their emotions will experience a singular film that will be nearly impossible to forget no matter how hard they try.

...not a great film, and not an easy one to watch, but it is an important one, a powerful argument against our old ways of doing business
