Oscar: Do you remember that pact we made? We promised to never leave each other.
Enter the Void is self described by the film's director, Gaspar Noe, as a psychedelic melodrama, and that is a pretty decent way to sum it up. Given that this film is inspired by, among other things, 2001: A Space Odyssey, basically replace that film's various themes and imagery with a trippy stroll down the world of a drug addict's disembodied soul, as he travels Tokyo and witnesses various events of his life and the future. Also be warned that this film has the kind of audio and visual craft to plunge you into a world that could induce a seizure if you are not careful. It is also quite graphic. Still, on a technical level especially, this is certainly as far from mainstream cinema as one can get and certainly straddles the line between pretension and intense art.
