This film is presented completely UNCUT and includes the ‘missing reel’ not featured in the film’s original release!

For many critics and film-goers, 2009’s most mind-blowing movie wasn’t Inception, it was this spectacular psychedelic odyssey of life after death from French maverick Gaspar Noe.

Inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and set against Tokyo’s thumping neon club scene, the story is told completely from the point-of-view of a young American drug dealer. When he is shot and killed by the police early in the film, his point-of-view persists, hovering over the city, re-working his memories and watching over his troubled stripper sister.

As well as mesmerising camerawork, there are dazzling fractal light-shows and a final, delirious and  climactic drift in, around and through an elaborate Love Hotel – eye-popping stuff in every respect.
