Fred Rocha’s review published on Letterboxd:
Le reveur reve reveillé. Apparently this was the movie Gaspar Noé decided to write after coming back from a coma. Only a staunch death experience like that could result in such a deep and powerful work about the autumn of life. But Noé is still Noé; insisting, explicit, patient, psychedelic. He will make you live through scenes, not only inform you about them.
This is one of those works of Art, like “La Meglio Gioventu” that tells life. It makes you dive into brutally true realities, allowing to live other lives rather than just yours. You get to exercise that evolutive advantage that is engaging in imaginary universes. And that’s how we grow.
