This movie is shocking, but a masterpice. Gaspar is a genius! "Le temps detruit tout!"

Gaspar Noe does not set out to please viewers - he has his vision and if you don't like it, move along. Irreversible is about how we can't change time - working in reverse it shows up consequences of actions - small things lead to devastating results. The worst comes early, but the pleasant ending (really the beginning) only makes it hurt deeper.

A young woman is brutally raped in a subway tunnel provoking huge discussions between beret wearing chin strokers as to whether or not it's art. This film is most definitely well acted, particularly I'd have to say by Monica Belucci who I never really considered a great actress before, but she is totally believable which is why the ordeal she endures is even more difficult to stomach. The rape scene is truly horrific; I genuinely believe that sensationalism was not the aim, and its brutal realism is almost unbearable. But what of the rest of the film? The story is told in reverse, but I couldn't really see the reason why beyond disguising the minimality of the plot. Were we supposed to be MORE horrified by what we'd seen after we'd gotten to know some personal details about the victim? …
