The favorite VOD platform for indie film lovers and those from other borders and countries that are not Hollywood comes with several major premieres this May, including the ‘straight cut’ of Irreversible, one of the hardest films to watch in existence and that is now being released with all its scenes in chronological order -in the original it was the other way around, it started at the end of the film and ended at the beginning.
Controversial at its premiere in 2022, 20 years later and in the middle of the #MeToo era, the unbearable 9-minute rape scene of Monica Belluci’s character in the still-shot film continues to impress with its tremendous and overwhelming realism. And in an era when movies are afraid to surpass PG-13, the scene of the man with the skull being smashed with a fire extinguisher (also a fixed shot), turns stomachs at the effectiveness of its staging.
Apology for shock value or so realistic that it is uncomfortable to see? The viewer decides, as always happens with Noé.
