Afterlife of a drug dealer shot in Tokyo

Irreversible turned conventional cinema back-to-front. Now, Gaspar Noé leaves it behind entirely as he odysseys to the furthest fringes of filmmaking. Here, death is the ultimate trip, as wasted drug dealer Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) gets shot in Tokyo but his spirit sticks around – in the form of an unstoppable first-person camera – to survey the wreckage. Using blockbuster-standard technique to avantgarde purpose, the result’s as revolutionary as Avatar. And as flawed: there’s a juvenile obsession with sex/drugs and the narrative meanders even more in this Director’s Cut. But Noé’s bravura is undeniable… Go with the flow.
