Horror at Sundance: "Enter the Void"

"Enter the Void" is the latest from master provocateur Gaspar Noe ("Irreversible", "I Stand Alone") and early accounts indicate that its every bit as shocking and technically brilliant as his previous films. It follows an American brother and sister living in the seedy streets of Japan but here's the kicker: it's entirely filmed in the first-person from the perspective of the brother. The brother dies early in the film so we spend the majority of the film soaring over Tokyo watching over the sister through the eyes of his ghost. Of course, this being a Gaspar Noe film we can look forward to some ugliness mixed in with the beauty in the form of extreme sex, violence and bodily fluids.
