Our Tune in, Turn On series kicks off with Gaspar Noe’s vivid “psychedelic melodrama” ENTER THE VOID. A 35mm presentation!
In the long awaited follow up to his controversial film Irreversible, Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void has been called a “revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling.” Set in the thumping neon club scene of Tokyo we see two American siblings – Oscar, a druggie, and Linda, a stripper – navigate the city’s seedy underbelly. One day Oscar is shot by the police and his drug-fueled hallucinations of his past transfer into an elevated existence in the afterlife. Noe makes us a part of this visceral journey through all the wonderful and miserable moments in life and death as well as exploring the possibility that there may be more than a void at the end.
Part of Nitehawk’s April TUNE IN, TURN ON midnite series.
