Climax ★★★★★

Climax is the cinematic equivalent of a literal nightmare, and I loved every second of it
It’s a hypnotically mesmerizing film that descended further and further into madness as it progresses
The music in the film acts as a heartbeat that will sink its claws into your mind and never let go
It isn’t until the title appears at the end that a collective breath will be taken, a quite literal climax
The choreography begins by being extraordinary with that breathtaking one take, but as it progresses, it becomes more and more terrifying. The longer it progresses, the more it seems out of the dancers control
Noé is his usual provocative self, and some imagery is genuinely stomach curdling
Even with all this nightmare fuel though, you’ll never want to look away, because missing a second of this is a sin in and of itself
