The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
| 96 minutes | 2018
France Sangria Massacre! You’ve been told – not that you didn’t already know. Gaspar Noé’s latest delivers the celluloid meltdown of the year. In fact, it’s hard to imagine anything this year that’s more brilliantly deranged. Over in Cannes, they’re still recovering! Imagine Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom on the dancefloor and France as a monstrous, self-cannibalizing entity. A rapacious film neck-deep in allegory that starts with a wild party and ends in hell. Virtuosic and radical, Climax is a study in what happens when sleeping dogs wake up.Presented by FTA
