Irréversible (2002)

4.5 / 5
Tagline: Time destroys everything
Directed by: Gaspar Noe

Genre: Horror, Crime, Thriller
Length: 99 minutes
Banned: New Zealand
Country: France

This is another film that isn't horror in a traditional sense, but rather it's horrific and disturbing. A woman on her way home from a party is raped graphically and for a large chunk of the movie you only watch her pain. There is a bit more to it because it's more about well time destroying everything as the tagline reads. It's very very hard to watch but somehow it really makes it's point. If you like films that are shockingly brutal than you'll adore this, I found it hard to watch and for that I can't say I "liked" it, but it was one hell of an intense ride and it more than made it's point. Really some brilliant work here, it's just so darned frustratingly horrific!
