Widely regarded as the bald bad boy of contemporary French cinema, Gaspar Noé has been disrupting movies and polarising opinions for the past twenty years with his visceral blend of provocative films such as Irréversible and Enter The Void. Coinciding with the release of his new film Vortex, starring legendary ‘giallo’ director Dario Argento, we will screen a selection of his films, some of Argento’s classics and Noé’s favorite film, the shockingly controversial Salò O Le 120 Giornate Di Sodoma.
Quiet, compassionate, but no less devastating. The latest from French cinema’s enfant terrible Gaspar Noé is his most personal and contemplative work yet. “I’ve already made films that scared people, turned them on, or made them laugh. This time I wanted to make a film that made them cry as hard as I could cry, in life as at the cinema.”
Shot almost entirely in split-screen, Vortex is an unflinching portrait of an elderly couple during their final days together – starring improvised performances from the legendary French actress Francoise Lebrun & Italian giallo master Dario Argento.
