CLIMAX might have just as easily been called Gaspar’s Inferno, so intensely does it portray a descent into a hellish state after its divinely physical first half. Pairing his usual boundary-pushing sex-and-drugs fixation with a vital presentation of wildly exuberant dance and movement, Gaspar Noé has made a film that’s seductive in its rhythms and bold visualization of his young dancers’ sometimes beautiful, other times brutal somatic expressiveness.” – Todd McCarthy*

Noé won the Art Cinema Award tonight at the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. (Last year’s winner – Chloé Zhao‘s The Rider – is in cinemas now.)

CLIMAX – which will be released in the States by A24 – stars Sofia Boutella, who also appears in the Fahrenheit 451 remake, premiering on HBO this weekend.
