Saw this French film with english subtitles, over the weekend very powerful images, story told in reverse sequences, this also has a long rape scene similar to OUTIA, and a brutal bludgeoning with a fire extinguisher Directed by Gaspar Noe with Vincent Cassel, Monica Bellucc, Albert Dupontel. Check it out, not for the squeemish

this is a harsh film! i couldn't watch the rape scene. the film is amazing but maybe too real. if you want escapeism don't watch this.
but that said, great film.

That could just be cannon fire.

Good film, but I tell you what, his other movie, I Stand Alone, is in some ways more disturbing and nasty than Irreversible. Try and catch it if you can.

I watched this film on dvd with a 'movie-fan-buddy' of mine and I gotta tell you, it is the only film that made me physically sick - now, that's not to say it's a bad movie; far from it, it is indeed a powerful and brilliantly shot film, I like the way the narrative is in reverse and the performances are spot-on... however, THAT beginning in THAT club and what happens to THAT face! and yes, the rape scene, I was warned by a French friend of mine that this was not an easy watch.  I always fancied Monica Bellucci something stupid after seeing her in BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF but after this film, well halfway through the rape sequence, I bolted to the bathroom and blew chunks. DEFINITELY the most disturbing film I've ever seen.
