The first thing to say about this movie is that it wasn't worth finishing. This film comes to us from France, and while some movies like "In My Skin" & "Inside" were interesting enough to finish, this one couldn't even make it half way.
There are a few things you should know about this movie. First off it starts at the end of the plot and moves itself backwards, which is very confusing. The camera throughout the whole film is reminiscent of films like "Cloverfield" and the Blair Witch Project, it was ten times worse at least. I don't even get motion sickness and I felt a little nauseous.
In the first few minutes of the film you are treated to a near naked old man, the dark underside of a gay club, as well as someone being brutally murdered with a fire extinguisher. There was a lot of talk of fisting, and it was strange and confusing. it was very quiet except for the horrid humming music they put in the background.
So here is the half ass review of "Irreversible". In conclusion the only thing that is irreversible is what you will see.
If you are interested in gay fisting, enjoy puking from both nausea and motion sickness. Pick up "Irreversible" at your closest french film retailer.
This song continually comes to mind after watching this weird foreign film.
