Void Where Exhibited

Very few films this year have received as much controversial buzz as Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void. Leaving audiences in awe from Cannes to Sundance, the movie has gained equally vocal fans and detractors along the way. It stars Nathaniel Brown and Boardwalk Empire’s Paz de la Huerta as a pair of codependent orphans. Owing as much to the Tibetan Book of the Dead as it does to 2001: A Space Odyssey, the film explores the aftermath of one young man’s death during a hallucinogenic club scene in Tokyo. If the story doesn’t grab you, see it for its innovative cinematography. The camera takes the place of the young man’s wandering soul, darting over a brightly lit Tokyo skyline into the city’s seedy underground. This Friday, make up your own mind about the film when it screens at the Coral Gables Art Cinema. In typical Noé fashion, there’s plenty of graphic portrayals of sex, violence, and drug use (after all, this is the same French filmmaker behind Irréversible, a movie with a nine-minute rape scene). Squeamish moviegoers might want to find a different void to enter.
