Saw Irreversible last night

It was a good movie but one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen.

I had mixed feelings on this film



When I walked out of the theater
I had a physical reaction to it.

First, it was difficult to "reconstruct" due to the backward telling of the story, much like the more popular "memento" which I found much easier to reconstruct.

Second, the violence, was palpable and left a sickening feeling, and the randomness of it all. too.

Third, Monica Belucci, is absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful in the movie.


I found it to be one of the 'most powerful" films I have ever watched,
but I am unable to recommend it,
I think it is not possible to watch without being "harmed" in some way.

with that said, I do not regret having viewed it.

My brother recomended it to me and the first 10 minutes of the film made me turn it off. I had to come back to it a little later to watch the rest of it. I couldn't handle it at first. The vivid sexuality, the violence and the camera work. Made me almost throw up.

No. I don't regret it. I like movies that shock and make you think. It wasn't boring... thats for sure. Yes I am familiar with her 'Matrix' she is so hot.
