Controversial and brilliant director Gasper Noe follows his worldwide sensation Irreversible with another triumph. Enter The Void is Noe's most assured and haunting film yet, a "head trip" a la Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and at the same time a piercing modern drama. Newcomer Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta (HBO's Boardwalk Empire) star as a brother and sister trapped in the hellish nighttime world of Tokyo where he deals drugs and she works as a stripper. A crime gone bad leads to shocking violence and then moments of transcendence in which the movie plunges viewers into death and rebirth like no film has ever done before via "mesmerizing camerawork"

A psychedelic melodrama by visionary French maverick Gaspar Noe (IRREVERSIBLE), ENTER THE VOID is a cinematic thrill ride that's tripped out audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals.
Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) and his sister Linda (Paz de la Huerta of THE LIMITS OF CONTROL), separated as children when their parents were killed in a car crash, are re-united in Tokyo, where he's a small-time drug dealer and she's a stripper. One night Oscar is shot in a police raid, but true to a promise he made Linda as a child, that he would never leave her, he refuses to abandon the world of the living. His spirit hovers over the city, and we see events through his eyes. His visions grow ever more nightmarish and distorted, as past, present and future merge, allowing Noe full rein to experiment with the hallucinatory power of cinema. Non-linear, immersive, and just plain mind-bending, ENTER THE VOID is sure to be one of the most talked-about films of the year.
