New Enter The Void Trailer Online
Noe's escape from reality

Giant titles? Check. Nosebleed inducing sound and visuals? Yup. Quiet, tranquil bits juxtaposed with super-dark stuff? Present. Could this possibly be a trailer for the new Gaspar Noe film Enter the Void? Oh yes.

It's very recognisably a film by the director of Irreversible then, but there's new ground to be trod here, both in terms of the expensive special effects, the point of view, and the fact that it's in English. 

Don't let the language and the FX lull you into any sort of false sense of security that Noe has gone mainstream though. Enter the Void (or Soudain Le Vide, if you will) draws some sort of inspiration from The Tibetan Book of the Dead, and continues to follow its protagonist Oscar even after he shuffles off this mortal coil. 

There will be sex and drugs and violence, we can reveal. No rock 'n' roll though: the sound design is by Thomas Bangalter from Daft Punk. Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star, and, after a long time on the festival circuit, Enter the Void will finally get a UK release on September 24.

I don't expect a backlash similar to the Irreversibel fiasco at Cannes, but there is enough reason for debate. The switches from POV to omniscient viewer are amazing to watch and Noé really tried his best to recreate a More
