Out this week is the trailer for Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void. This story follows Oscar, played by Nathaniel Brown, a Tokyo drug dealer who gets killed and watches over his sister Linda, Paz de la Huerta, as a ghost. Originally premiering at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Enter the Void has been picked up by IFC and will be available OnDemand and in theaters on September 24th.
“Death takes one man on a journey that is by turns beautiful and terrifying in this feature from writer and director Gaspar Noe, who describes it as “a psychedelic melodrama.” Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) is a small time drug dealer who sells his wares at a club in Tokyo called “The Void.” In the midst of a deal that goes sour, Oscar is shot dead, and finds himself crossing from one plane of existence to the next. When he was younger, Oscar made a pledge to his younger sister Linda (Paz de la Huerta) to always look after her, and as his soul leaves his body, the spirit is led on a journey through Tokyo, past traditional consciousness and into the moment of human creation as he struggles to be reunited with Linda, who now works as an exotic dancer.”
Blind-strikingly colorful, trippy, and flat out provocative are only short of the impression you’ll get from watching the trailer for the first time. Posing more questions than answers, you’ll find yourself either turned off from confusion or itching for more. Find out what group you belong to by watching the trailer below.
