GREAT MOVIES YOU MAY HAVE MISSED: Enter the Void (2009) — Written and directed by Gaspar Noe.
THOUGHTS: This movie is absolutely mind blowing. Filmed from a first-person perspective, director Gaspar Noe puts viewers in the mind and eventually the spirit of a lost, young drug dealer as he deals with life and death in the glowing neon streets of Tokyo. Be forewarned, this movie is HEAVY. This movie puts you in the shoes of a man who has died and makes you experience the after life with him in a very visually effective way. Pure headtrip. A visual masterpiece. And an absolute joy.
PREMISE: A drug deal is shot by the police after falsely claiming to have a gun. As he falls and sees his crippled, lifeless body, his entire life flashes before his eyes. When he reaches the point of his death, his spirit roams Tokyo following the people he knows and loves. Shot from a first-person point of view, you experience this all with him.
