Film Review: Irreversible

I'm not giving this a star rating because it was just so jarring I'm not sure what my opinion of it actually is. For those uninitiated Irreversible is a film by french director Gaspar Noe that runs backwards and depicts two incredibly brutal acts of violence in two scenes, the most brutal filmed in a single take nearly ten minutes in length. The performances are superb the camera work inventive and the score contains a low frequency noise designed to make viewers nauseous. I'd recommend this to anyone with an open mind, I'd love to hear anyones take on this interesting piece of work.
