Irreversible provocateur Gaspar Noe unleashes another avant-garde assault upon audiences in this deliriously wicked, undeniably daring acid trip through Tokyo"s neon-splattered underworld. After young American stripper Paz de la Huerta"s drug-dealing brother (Nathaniel Brown) is gunned down by cops, the camera takes the p.o.v. of his disembodied spirit as it floats over buildings, through walls, down sewers, and even inside a fallopian tube. If you"re prone to seizures, anxiety, or staying in your comfort zone, might we instead recommend Kings of Pastry?
In New York, I sat down with Noe to discuss the afterlife, bad drug trips he"s had, timeless movies, and why the 17-minute-longer version of his film (originally seen at Cannes) is not a "director"s cut." Also, why oh why did I reference Eat Pray Love to a man who clearly wouldn"t know what I meant?
