ENTER THE VOID (TIFF Lightbox) – Go for the title credits and the first-person full screen trip the main character goes on. After that, the story and plot and characters are just bonuses. The title credits start out a bit annoying, strobing strobing strobing… but when they really take off… they cease being words and names. They lose meaning and become feeling.
If you can stay for the whole movie, you’ll see an odd, non-linear plot about some pretty serious disfunction. At the end of it all, I’m not sure if Alex is Oscar’s friend, or his father, or if Linda is his sister or his mother… I’m not sure it matters.
Graphic, surprising, odd. Definitely not for everyone.
