Climax (MA 15+)

Climax movie poster

Winner of the Art Cinema Award at Cannes 2018.

From director Gaspar Noé comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one wintry night. In Climax, a troupe of young dancers gathers in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benoît Debie and shot by Noé himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they’ve been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown. Starring Sofia Boutella and a cast of professional dancers, Climax is Noé’s most brazen and visionary statement yet.

"a provocative masterpiece" - FILMINK AUSTRALIA

"a cinema of sensual outrageousness and excess that makes other films look middleaged and tame" - GUARDIAN

"a film that’s seductive in its rhythms and bold visualization of his young dancers’ sometimes beautiful, other times brutal somatic expressiveness" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Gaspar Noé’s remarkable psychedelic ride is his most focused achievement, a concise package of sizzling dance sequences and jolting developments" INDIEWIRE

"It's a woozily photographed portrait of humanity in extremis that pushes hot buttons with abandon" - UK TIMES
