Highly Suspect Reviews: Climax

Climax Movie Review


Gaspar Noé is kinda a madman. No one makes more extreme, ambient, experiential, experimental films than him (that get a wide release, anyway). His latest film Climax is certainly no exception. Sofia Boutella is the only recognizable actor here, as a lead member of a group of French dancers throwing a party in an abandoned school. These guys like to party but whoo boy. It shortly turns out that someone in their group has dosed the sangria with some sort of extreme hallucinogen and oh shit…we’re definitely watching a Gaspar Noé film here. Much like his other films, Climax is not for your casual filmgoer. But how does it rank with Chris and Alan? Listen to this Climax Movie Review to find out.
