"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"
 
Irreversible (2002) (France) - (Movies To See Before You Die - World Cinema/Thriller)
10 Aug, 2008 | Movies To See Before You Die / World Cinema

Some movies shake you up and disturb you to a great extent with their strong and heavy content. Irreversible is one of those rare movies which is strictly not for children and people with weak hearts. The movie is bold & cruel with two strong assets. One is it’s narration which goes backward with time. That means you see the events happening backward in time like from 3pm night to 6pm of the last evening.

And second is its hard hitting, brutal and shockingly executed shot of a sexual assault in the subway. You will be amazed to think that how the scene was shot and moreover how the actors enacted it. Truly a spectacular, cinematic extravaganza and a movie of its own kind. Though it is said to be a thriller but it can easily be categorized as a horror movie too due to its haunting impact. See it if you want to get a shock of your life. Don’t see it with your family and children. Infact the DVD should have this warning on it. It’s one of those rare movies having a draining effect on the viewer. It is exhaustive must watch for all students of cinema.

Directed By Gaspar Noe
Starring : Monica Bellucci & Vincent Cassel

Thanks Dinuth for all these recommendations. Some of these are sure new for me and I am really looking forward to watching them.
However I have seen 400 blows and it was a good movie but I somehow didnt feel like adding it to my list.
I will soon let you know after I have seen any of these.

Thanks

Irreversible english dubbed version is available?
Bobby Sing

Hi Suchith,
I would suggest watch it in the subtitles version in the original language as dubbing takes away many things from a film which should be avoided unless necessary. So do try the original film once.

Cheers!

Why did I watch this movie yaar???...its haunting me...soooo disturbing
Bobby Sing

Yes Suchith,
It surely is one of the most disturbing movies ever.
But movies like these are in fact a significant part of the World Cinema.
Cheers!
