A French drug dealer living in Tokyo is betrayed by his best friend and killed in a drug deal. His soul, observing the repercussions of his death, seeks resurrection. Say wha?! Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void is a visionary cinematic roller-coaster ride that “represents a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling”—Andrew O’Hehir, Salon. Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in the visceral journey set against the thumping neon club scene of Tokyo, which hurls the viewer into an astonishing trip through life, death, and the universally wonderful and horrible moments in between. “This is a daring, thrilling, awful and wondrous film…one of the most mind-blowing and ambitious feature films ever made” (O’Hehir). Unrated. In English and in Japanese with English subtitles. 2010. 161 Min.
Screened as part of the ENERGY/EXHAUSTION 2019/2020 film series, Wednesdays at Railroad Square Cinema — 7:15 p.m. (Oct. – April). Presented by the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities and Colby Cinema Studies.
