Enter the Void

Friday, April 22 - Saturday, June 4, 2022

DCP Projection

Provocative, audacious and visionary, Gaspar Noé (Irreversible) pushes the boundaries of hallucinatory cinema with this exploration of sex, drugs, life and death. A brother and sister scratch out a living in Tokyo’s underworld–Oscar’s a small-time dealer, Linda (Paz de la Huerta, The Limits of Control) is an exotic dancer. One night, a police bust goes horribly wrong, and Oscar is shot. But as he lies dying, his spirit refuses to leave the world. Instead, it wanders through the city, its visions growing ever more distorted and nightmarish.

“Four stars! A tour de force… strong contender for both the artiest drug movie and the druggiest art movie ever made… [the climax] leaves you dazed, elated and absolutely awestruck.” – David Fear, Time Out New York

“Terrifying and surpassingly beautiful… a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling… daring, thrilling… with this movie Noe jumps to the front rank of mindf**k acid-trip filmmakers, right next to David Lynch, and I wandered out afterwards… feeling dazzled, dizzy, exhausted, grateful… love, hate, disgust, arousal, amazement — all are appropriate reactions to one of the most mind-blowing and ambitious feature films ever made.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
