The trailer for Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void has hit the Web, and it’s a feast for the eyes and the ears (for those who like techno). In case you can’t follow it — it made perfect sense after some Googling and a repeat viewing — it’s about a small-time drug dealer, Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), who’s killed in Tokyo but won’t break the childhood pact he made with his stripper sister (Paz de la Huerta) after their parents died that he would never leave her. “His spirit wanders through the city, his visions growing evermore distorted, evermore nightmarish. Past, present and future merge in a hallucinatory maelstrom,” says the synopsis. According to reviews from 2009’s Cannes film festival, the camera is held right behind spirit Oscar’s head for the flashbacks (pictured), and for the scenes that happen after his death, it hovers above as though we’re looking through spirit Oscar’s eyes. A trip worth taking?
