Irreversible

Irreversible ★★★★★

Irréversible is a project by a man with his left hand grabbing a camera and his right hand grabbing his balls. What we have here is essentially an adaptation of Dante's Divine Comedy told backwards (from the hellish opening sequences to the heaven-like ending) and put in the context of a brutal, noirish and nightmarish France, showing reality just as it is while aesthetically achieving something spectacular, like an "Antichrist" of Béla Tarr.

96/100
