DO NOT! I REPEAT! DO NOT TAKE CHICKS TO THIS ON A FIRST DATE!
I have a love hate relationship with this film! I'm a pretty hardcore lady... when it comes to films I've seen it all! I see a jackhammer going into a skull... no problemo! Maggots falling out of a zombie's virginia... no problemo! But Irreversible's brutal and agonizingly long attack was almost above and beyond what I could handle! It was just too freakin REAL!
The Cinematography will absolutely blow your mind or a gasket you choose which! I have never seen a film quite like this! Gaspar Noé is the Picasso of Film!
Clap your hands together for the incredible performances given by Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, and Albert Dupontel!
Love it or hate I think there is one thing everyone can agree upon, besides it being highly controversial, it was also a groundbreaking film in many different ways!
A truly haunting film!
