I actually left because it got to be a little too disturbing for my taste. The first 45 minutes could have been wrapped up in about 20 minutes. however, if you're into trippy movies you will like this.

I LOVE THIS FREAKING MOVIE!!!! Beautifully shot and uncomfortable in pure Gaspar Noè style. The entire movie created this wild atmosphere that immerses yourself into it. I just love love love this movie.

This movie was somewhere between stepping on a pile of legos and kicking something really hard with your cold pinkie toe.

If you like postmodern gimmickry and modern dance, and are OK with sitting through nearly 10 minutes of staged talking-head interviews, glum stoner talk about abortion, nausea-inducing filmmaking, characters whose motivations don’t make sense, horror, exploitative child death, and a quasi-coercive lesbian make-out—but just don’t care to be reminded “Drugs! Are! Bad!”: Leave 89 minutes in. Or don’t come at all, because Climax really isn’t about anything more than that.

Pairing his usual boundary-pushing sex-and-drugs fixation with a vital presentation of wildly exuberant dance and movement, Gaspar Noe has made a film that’s seductive in its rhythms and bold visualization of his young dancers’ sometimes beautiful, other times brutal somatic expressiveness.

You may emerge from Climax, as from a full-on club night, feeling shattered and asking yourself what was the point of it all. But there’s no denying the mastery of Noé and his team, and the extravagant talent of his cast.
