About the idea Noe can't do joyous in his films, sure, but look at the last moments of Irreversible (essentially the beginning of the story) and those feature some great visual language to underscore one of the happier moments a woman can receive (if wanting the news). I don't think there is any huge graduation to strive for changing pace and feature a different tone. I think Noe has done it before to limited intention and if he wants to really do it for full length, I imagine he could. It's already incredible how much he has expanded in filmmaking since I Stand Alone.

If you detach ending from rest of the film, it is joyous. If you look at what happen next (middle and then beginning of the film), it just adds up to the gut punch. Then I think ending is the only thing that saves the film - there is more to it than the rape or head smashing. It is counterbalance - to comprehend ugliness, you must experience beauty at its highest point (or vice versa). One of the reason why "Irreversible" is so misunderstood.

Yea, but you say it is counter balance like the rape or head smashing was a dominant feature of the film. Ugliness was all around in all facets but that was just one scene. Speaking of which, the film is pretty inventive with the filmmaking throughout and the head smashing/rape scene is more memorable to the degree it goes but considering some films that try to be as provoking as that scene throughout their entire movie, I think it's overrated to fixate on it as much as some of us do. I think the film's major problem is some superficial elements of story relating back to theme.

He's basically patting Von Trier on the head and calling him "adorable" at this point.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Noe is the real deal. The more I think about Enter the Void, more I have it as the best of last decade. His filmmaking has been hugely influential elsewhere with other filmmakers and he's going out with every project. His Love project sounds fascinating.

I don't know, that Nympho director's cut trailer alone was very full on. That said, I wonder how far Noe is willing to push it.

Quoting yourself is in bad taste, but it feels like some parts of previous discussion are still relevant:

Sex and Gaspar is nothing new to the point of being uninteresting for me. I'm more looking forward to a cheerful film, which would be a huge change for Noe (which I pointed out in one of the previous posts). In the end there isn't much related to sex that he didn't show already.

Gaspar No's LOVE very first still + synopsis

NSFW still

January the 1st, early morning. The telephone rings. Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electras mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electras been missing for a long time. She's afraid something really bad has happened to her. Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra. A burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes

Gaspar Noe needs to hire a screenwriter and make a movie that has depth, all of his movies are disposable. Great camera moves but outside of cinematography nerds his films don't hold an audience.

Gaspar Nos Next Film Is Psych, New Details Emerge

There are few provocateurs in modern cinema quite like Gaspar No. The filmmaker stunned audiences with the intense rape drama Irreversible, tried to give them seizures with Enter The Void, and pushed himself to the edges of pornography with Love. Now, the director is setting up his next picture and is staying decidedly #OnBrand.

Details of the project, titled Psych (yep, psyche) have emerged from funding group Tax Shelter Belgium, and fan site Les Temps Detruit Toups. Budgeted at 2.6 million (or about $3.1 million U.S.) the film will take viewers back to the 90s, with another story about drugs, perception, and madness. You know, the usual. Heres the synopsis:

Quote
In the mid 90s, about twenty urban dancers joined together for a 3-day rehearsal in a closed down boarding school located at the heart of a forest, to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl.

Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And its soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rythm of the music While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.

The picture is set for an incredibly brief two-week shoot, and if I understand things correctly, the first cut could be ready by June. So, could there be a new Gaspar No film on the festival circuit by the end of the year? Possibly. That said, Tax Shelter Belgium does say that filming is supposed to be wrapped this month, but with no announced cast members, its unclear if it has already gone into production on the sly or has been delayed. Either way, No has something brewing, and its likely to melt your eyeballs again.
