What isn't hard to say is that No#233; really isn't a very talented filmmaker.

The fact is, the reverse chronology makes Irreversible a film that structurally argues against rape and violence, while ordinary chronology would lead us down a seductive narrative path toward a shocking, exploitative payoff.

Stupid, vicious, and pretentious, though you may find it worth checking out if you want to experiment with your own nervous system.
