Irréversible (2002) C-99m. ?? D: Gaspar Noé. Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel. Remember the days when movies used to make you laugh and could even remind you to be optimistic? Here comes yet another ugly, "artistically significant", violent-filled, gratuitous mayhem flick. Girlfriend raped (in a scene which feels like 90 straight minutes), boyfriend wants blood. One notable critic defend film by covering its nonlinear structure--which, in a way, recycles the "explicit payoff"--but that doesn't make the movie any more entertaining . . . or memorable. Noé must have been pretty proud of his pornography, he also wrote, co-produced, and co-photographed.
