Argentinian director Gaspar Noe has challenged audiences with his stunning, brutal yet masterful films including the savage but brilliant Irreversible (hard to call it a favourite film, but one of the finest examples of extreme, challenging cinema in recent memory), the highly technical Enter the Void and his thought provoking debut, I Stand Alone.

Its been six years since Enter the Void, but now Noe is back with a highly controversial love triangle film called Love, which features some of the most sexually explicit footage you can see this side of porn. The film caused quite a stir at Cannes, but has been picked up by Alchemy for US distribution.

To get us in the mood for some loving, the first trailer has been released, but for God sake don’t watch this at work!

Gaspar Noe writes, directs and stars in Love, and the rest of the cast includes Aomi Muyock, Klara Kristin and Karl Glusman.

Synopsis:

The story of the film is told through flashbacks as Murphy [Karl Glusman] receives a phone call that his ex-girlfriend Electra [Aomi Muyock] is missing. He’s bored of his marriage to Omi [Klara Kristin], and the movie jumps back and forth in time as we see Murphy and Electra fall madly in love, and slowly drift apart. Murphy is still obsessed with Electra and can’t stop imagining the life they could have shared, if fate had been kinder to them. The film is apparently about how destructive the act of falling in love is, but it also features lots of what appears to be actual sex which is even more graphic than what Lars Von Trier put on screen in Nymphomaniac. If the reports are to be believed than you get to see full sex including shots of ejaculation, blow jobs, threesome, and an orgy….and all in 3D!

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
