Irreversible (Not Rated)

French with English subtitles

The dark horse of contemporary French cinema, Gaspar Noé (I Stand Alone), returns with his most challenging and provocative film to date. Told in reverse chronology, Irreversible moves from extreme depravity to bittersweet serenity as a young woman (Monica Bellucci) is brutally raped and beaten into a coma by a stranger in the subway and her boyfriend (Vincent Cassel) embarks on a quest for vengeance. A visceral portrait of the extremities of human behavior, with original music by Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk.
