Focus on: Gaspar Noé
+ extended intro by season programmer Anna Bogutskaya
Step Up meets The Devils in Gaspar Noé’s unhinged dance horror.
Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic, Kiddy Smile
France-Belgium 2018. 96min
A group of dancers rehearse in a remote location and descend into delirium and madness after their sangria is spiked with acid. Starring a mix of actors and amateur and professional dancers, Climax is a feat of frenzied choreography: dance horror at its finest. Neatly structured in two sections, Noé’s most kinetic film is also his most contained.
