Climax Review

climax (1)“A Fucking Trip”


CLIMAX was the last film I saw at TIFF and holy shit what a way to end it. If your a fan of Noe’s previous films then I highly recommend you watch this and if not, go into this with caution as this is not for the faint of heart. I’m not a big fan of all his films but what I can say about each and every one is that each one has left an impression with me and has shocked me on way or another. Climax is no exception.

The film is absolute chaos. And I don’t say this in a bad way. From the very start Noe hooks you and boy oh boy, you are in for a fucking treat. A group of dancers celebrate and party and drink unknowingly Sangria laced with LSD.

Everything is thoroughly done to perfection. From the incredible acting performances to the brilliant/unbelievable cinematography to the unconventional narrative, wonderful choreography and striking/hypnotic synth score. All across the board, its just perfectly crafted and downright mesmerizing.

The camera angles they are able to get is unreal and the way everything’s filmed – every scene seamlessly flows into one another and it feels like you are watching one continuous take the entire time. It’s such a joy to watch.

I’ve never ever seen anything like Climax. It’s original and very unique and no other person but Noe could have pulled this off. Watch this especially on the big screen if you have the chance. I can’t wait to see this again.

Climax is literally a fucking nightmare, but one that’s intense, exhilarating, unique, and thoroughly enthralling from start to finish.  Enjoy the fucking trip. Enjoy CLIMAX.  🙂
