What a strange little beauty this is. Truly remarkable. This is an experience. I can probably liken the elation after the film to the first time I watched Eraserhead.
For those who don't know the story, it seems to follow the Tibetan Book of the Dead belief of life-death-life. Follows the process brilliantly through the light of our main character Oscar--who succumbs to death after a bad drug deal. Immediately following his death, we go through the evacuation process. He follows his sister, his friends, silently sees the consequences and their reactions to his death. We are then thrust into the "magical mirror" stage of the process. Pivotal moments in his past life are shown, and scattered, repeated. Then we go into the future...or, what can be seen as a major difference in time perception. This leads to the re-birth of Oscar.
Notice I say "we" a lot there, well, it's because a majority of the film is in first-person perspective. It's nothing I've seen done so perfectly. Everything from the DMT hallucination at the beginning, to the death-process, to the out-of-body sensation. I can see why this should have been seen in the theater and really regret that this town didn't play it anywhere. Granted, I sat mere inches away from my oversized computer monitor to really sink into it as best as possible. It's hard to describe it all...it's a lot to take in. Noe is literally a magician. Some here may not be so much into it...it can seem very slow to some...meaningless even. It's nearly 2 1/2 hours long. Felt a lot longer to me, which is usually an insult to a movie, but not in this case...it's the biggest compliment I can pay it.
Enter the Void seems a lot more optimistic than Noe's previous exercises in Nihilism. It exudes serenity in death. Dare I say, it's a movie of hope.
