Irreversible ★★

“A woman’s pleasure is the pleasure of a man.”

Coming to the realization that Noé might not be for me. I can understand why people praise him so much, but I just can’t see through his transgressive disturbance in order to find the value on his cinema.

Like I mentioned on my Climax review, the fact of being incredibly unsettling just for the sake of it, does not imply a good movie, at least for me. Yes, I had to look away from the screen several times but, to be honest, I don’t believe that reaction to be too hard to get.

The pseudo-artistic superficial gimmicks, both in structure and camera work, might be cool, but in the end, they serve no meaningful purpose at all. 

Overstylized porn, if you ask me.
