Imagine The Tree of Life but through a Noé lens... This neon-rich, hallucinogenic, post-mortem trip into the mind and memories of a dead drug dealer is perhaps the most ambitious and visually excessive effort by Noé yet. It’s experimental and experiential, with mostly improvised dialogue, so best to sit back and let the images consume you.
Contains scenes of graphic violence and strobe lighting that some viewers may find distressing.
