In terms of the narrative, it might be his most minimalist and arguably, this stands as Gaspar Noé‘s best film to date. In terms of blueprint for both sound (Ken Yasumoto) and image (Benoît Debie’s vibrantly camerawork), this is an eyegasm pretty after the introduction of characters (VHS tape interview) are done with Climax. which our Nicholas Bell explains as “forever attuned to the sensory possibilities of cinema, provides a film which begins like a hit of amyl nitrate before it descends headlong into hysterical overdose territory, reeling like a nasty hangover after closing time at Berghain.” We would have preferred to see the night screening with cast in full dance mode, but we were nonetheless on hand for the world preem screening in the early a.m where all the buzz broke.
