Irreversible (2002) Top Quotes and Review
Stars:Stars: Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel
Review : A lot has been said about this movie. Yes, there are a couple of brutal and violent scenes. It’s even hard to watch at times, but Irreversible is much more than that.
I personally think that the acting is great. There’s a natural chemistry between the 3 main characters. Monica Bellucci does a wonderful job as Alex. I give her a lot credit for being involved in such difficult role.
I really like the way the story was told. Some people say that it’s a rip off of Memento, and that it doesn’t work well in this movie, but I have to disagree. The movie “starts” in a dark way, with a lot of graphic images and violence. But at the end there’s this kind of peace, a little dose of happiness…”the calm before the storm”. It works really well, and that’s what make this a really sad story.
I really recommend this film. But like I said before, it can be hard to watch. Just watch it with an open mind and give it a try.
