If you're reading this, you most likely have an idea by now of what this film is, what it contains, and how it is achieved. Curiosity finally got the better of me too, and I'd be lying if I didn't say a large part of me regrets it. I do not, however, wish to blame the film-maker, as given the content and message behind the movie, I can't think of any way to improve upon the ultra-tragic nightmaris... read more

Hay dos características de esta película que la hacen inconfundible, no se puede ocultar que es francesa y que está dirigida por Gaspar Noé. Un muy buen elenco logra una pieza de arte única. No apta para impresionables, cruda y muy fuerte. Diseñada bajo una dinámica inversa que hace la historia aún más interesante. Excelente musicalización y fotografía redondean un film para paladares e... read more

This is an excellent film with great cinematography, acting and storytelling technique. However, think before watching this if you find especially graphic scenes in films disturbing. I don't want to give too much away, but there are at least two particular acts of brutality against both men and women. I personally feel the prolonged acts of violence are essential to the emotion of the story, but c... read more

Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex (Monica Bellucci) is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass. Her boyfriend and ex-lover take matters into their own hands by hiring two criminals to help them find the rapist so that they can exact revenge. A simultaneously beautiful and terrible examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect, and how time destroys everything.

"Gaspar Noe demands way too much from his audience and, until the very end there is nothing pleasant or romantic about this movie, and at the end you have seen all the shit beforehand so it's still unsettling."

"27th of September, DVD Gaspar Noen haastava Irreversible vie katsojansa mukavuusalueen ulkopuolelle. Toisin kuin psykedeelinen Enter the Void, Irreversible on käänteisessä kronologisessa järjestyksessä tapahtuva shokkihoito. Pahamaineinen, yhden otoksen, ja liki kymmenen minuuttia kestävä raiskauskohtaus on erittäin epämiellyttävä kohtaus, joka saa katsojan kyseenalaistamaan kaiken sen, mitä on valmis elokuvalta näkemään. Noen omaperäinen tyyli kertoa elokuva käänteisessä jä"

My Overrated Films (17 movies items)

"The response from film critics is pretty mixed. But IMDb, on the other hand, is more forgiving. I like films that are graphic and disturbing, but this movie didn't impress me. It is well-made, though. From scenes like a guy's head being bashed continuously with a fire extinguisher to a woman being brutally raped for 9 minutes, this film is just too depressing, nihilistic, and pretentious. And not even the beautiful Monica Bellucci is enough to redeem this movie. I sat through organically graphi"
