    Another great Scorsese movie!
    Hilarious, great story, gorgeous shots, one of De niro's best performances.Todd Phillips literally copied the whole thing.

  • Irreversible

    Irreversible

    ★★★★½

    Ce film est une claque émotionnelle, c'est pas un film qu'on voit tout les jours. Des plans magnifiques, la mise en scène est révolutionnaire,l'ordre du film est parfait je trouve que ca n'aurait pas marcher dans l'ordre chronologique. La scène de viol est insoutenable, horrible et c'est justement le but faut vivre cette violence pour la comprendre. Gaspar noé est brilliant , il soumets le spectateur à cette violence pour transmettre son message.
