Distrubing...brutal..immoral..hard to watch..provocative...genius?
This movie is one of the most debated films in the last 10 years, a one that questions why we watch films? And what can we take from them?
"Irreversible" follows events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex 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.
