This was a great movie. It has multiple surprises. It's not what you think it is at all; it's so much more. It truly made me feel good and about subject matter that normally veers into tragedy or melodrama. Sakura AndÃ´ is amazing as well as staggeringly beautiful.
Interesting there have been no screenings yet.
I thought it was one of the better films I've seen this year. I'm guessing people didn't like it because it doesnt paint a very flattering picture of us? The allegory was pretty obvious, but very critical of religion. Maybe that also has something to do with it too. We certainly dont like to be told our faith is wrong or misplaced. Hits a little too close to home. That and the overt environmental overtones are likely not a plus for the folks who applaud the current administration's pick for head of the EPA; an inept moron whose aim seems to be to work himself out of a job.
It's hard to say "I love this film", but I do. It's hard to say [SPOILER] "I love the way he started out the film with a brutal murder in a hardcore gay club, and moves on to a violent rape", without feeling somewhat like a guilty bystander explaining, excitedly, to your friends that you witnessed a brutal crime.
The movie uses time and plot so well to drive home its point and though it starts out with what could be construed as the climactic ending and works backwords, the beginning is really the climax. It's a work of art on all levels and though it is brutal, it's importance as film/art outshines that brutality. That brutality takes the audience to such a depth that it allows for great emotional heights.
I've become a huge fan of Gaspar Noe and this is the finest example to date of his work, which says a lot as I also loved Enter the Void.
