Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 322: Wed Nov 18

Love (Noe, 2015): Rio Cinema and across London, 8.30pm

An exclusive filmed introduction from director Gaspar Noé + one of the most provocative films of the year.

Time Out review:
It promises all sorts of muck, and muck it delivers. ‘Love’ is a 3D sex film from Gaspar Noé, the French provocateur behind ‘Irreversible’ (violence, rape) and ‘Enter the Void’ (drugs, prostitution). It’s filthy and has many of the foibles of porn – bad dialogue, can-I-borrow-some-sugar plotting – but Noé holds back from showing hardcore penetration, although it’s hard to imagine his cast aren’t actually having full-on sex here. In the end, ‘Love’ is more silly than sordid, and even a little soppy in its late – too late – love-filled moments. Many teens will love it; most adults will roll their eyes.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
