Enter the Void (Gaspar Noe, 2010)

At this point I'm not really sure what to say about Gaspar Noe's Enter the Void. It is certainly still resonating with me. It features absolutely incredible cinematography and bizarre narrative-halting hallucinogenic drug induced light trips that reminded me of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. When a young American drug dealer is killed in Tokyo, his spirit remains behind and watches over his younger sister. It's a brilliant concept from the director of the hugely controversial Irreversible (2002), and an ingenious technical feat, but what a struggle at 160 minutes. Am I likely to watch it again? No. ***1/2
