After watching (& loving!) Gaspar Noe’s new film Enter the Void last month, I decided it was time to rewatch Irreversable. It had been 8 years since I’d seen the film in it’s theater release, namely known for it’s 10 min graphic rape scene. 

Rewatching it though, I was reminded how much I loved the film and really how genius Noe really is. And then at the end of the film (which is really the beginning) where Monica Belluci & Vincent Cassel lay in bed and the camera pans up and you see a quick glimpse of a movie poster for Space Odyssey: 2001 and the words “The Ultimate Trip”, the tag line for Noe’s Enter the Void, I said to myself “This guy is clever”


“I referenced ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ with the poster on [Monica’s] wall at the end of ‘Irreversible’ because in the original draft of ‘Enter the Void,’ the kids were talking about ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ all the time, and they were seen watching the film,” Noé says. “It was a [method] of linking that I took from Kubrick’s films. Some directors like linking the end of their previous movie to the beginning of their next movie. I put the same soundtrack [from the end of ‘Irreversible’] at the beginning of ‘Enter the Void,’ so if you [watch] the films in a row, you have that same [shuttering sound]. It’s a private joke. [laughs] I almost thought I would put a big [‘2001’] poster in front of Oscar and Linda’s apartment in Japan. It would have been another way of linking the movie to the previous one.”
