Why is ‘Irreversible’ still shocking 15 years later?

 

Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass.

When Gaspar Noel’s controversial drama Irreversible premiered back in 2003, audiences were at least a little prepared for its dizzying horror. A year earlier when it debuted at Cannes, the movie proved to be so divisive and shocking it made people leave the cinema in droves. – Film Daily

His friend, the cool, sage-like John (Bruce Dern), suggests that an LSD trip is exactly what Paul needs to get out of his rut.

His hallucinations, which include a carnival populated by dwarfs, bizarrely erotic encounters, and even his own death, radically reshape his consciousness.

At once a devastating, curiously uplifting inhuman drama and a superbly crafted genre exercise, Let The Right One In can stand toe-to-toe with Spirit Of The Beehive, Pan’s Labyrinth or Orphee. See it.- Empire
