I just had the most magnificent visual trip and i want to share with you. It’s legal to watch it so it’s legal to share. The film from director Gaspar Noe (Irreversible) is the most edgy experience one can have in cinema. The idea seams unreal. How to radically show the story of an outer body after death experience? Look impossible to be done interestingly enough. Either you think of cheesy images with ugly vignette effects on the corners or you think about something cameras don’t do. That’s what the director went after. The film really looks like a bad trip and it’s very intense in all manners. The story is violent and depressing, the camera makes you sick and the pace makes you think many times during the film “am i high???”  or “is this right??” or “is this real life?”. Even so it is that good and that’s because for those about movies it’s been a long time since filmmakers don’t dare much. Don’t try to push the limits. Filmmakers are loosing relevance because these days kids can have access to film tools and do great jobs. In this era more than ever filmmakers need to push the media further on and in this era filmmakers are lasier than ever before. It needs vision and no worries towars criticism if someone wants to travel this journey and mister Noe did it so deeply that result is not for everyone. It need courage from the viewer too or one should find the piece just plain wierd. I never saw outer body experiences like this one and after seeing it i can say it’s the best way one can do it. It’s so real it’s scary to look without thinking about death and spirit. Ride this one if you have the guts!
