IFC Films' original synopsis
One of the most anticipated cinematic events of the year, Gaspar Noe's ENTER THE VOID is a visionary cinematic thrill ride that's riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals. At Cannes, Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called it "an exceptional work... What largely distinguishes it, beyond the stunning cinematography, is that this is the work of an artist who's trying to show us something we haven't seen beforeMr. Noé, in other words, gets into your body..." The long-awaited follow up to his controversial IRREVERSIBLE, ENTER THE VOID is a cinematic roller-coaster ride that according to Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com "represents a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling." 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 between.
"AN EXCEPTIONAL WORK... What largely distinguishes it, beyond the stunning cinematography, is that this is the work of an artist who's trying to show us something we haven't seen before" "Mr. Noé, in other words, gets into your body...He wants to unsettle and disturb you, not only in the space between your ears, but in the rest of you, too, so that you feel your heart thumping in your chest and the sweat popping on your templesPURE CINEMA"
- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"There's no way to summarize the paranoid, terrifying and surpassingly beautiful lysergic odyssey between life and death on which Noé takes us...a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling." "This is a daring, thrilling, awful and wondrous film...one of the most mind-blowing and ambitious feature films ever made.""
-Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
