Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In visual terms, it's a whiz-bang marvel of swooping and soaring camera work and psychedelic imagery, lit by the gaudy fluorescence of Tokyo's seamier nightclubs."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"[It's] certainly an immersive experience that's decidedly difficult to shake. The problem is that it's also the most excruciating sit in recent cinematic memory."
‑ Jen Chaney, Washington Post
"Enter The Void is authentically meditative and beautifully shot, making it an unforgettable film."
‑ Blake Griffin, We Got This Covered
"This is what it feels like when a movie kicks you in the face."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"This is a film about... um ... life and death, we'll guess, and it involves a minor drug dealer, his sister, their dead parents and some cronies in Japan."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"If you yourself are stoked for a lurid, oversexed, stupid-with-Freud Midnight Movie extravaganza -- a trip to El Topo via Mulholland Drive -- there are worse ways to spend 2 1/2 hours."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"As chowderheaded as some of its underlying pretensions are, the movie's still an astonishing work of cinema, alternately brilliant and disgusting, naďve and inspired, tedious and sublime."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Enter the Void may be a monolith of sorts, but it's one erected solely as a testament to itself."
‑ Michael Nordine, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"The discipline on display here, to stick with concept and to execute it with consistency, is intense and considerable."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Noé's latest, Enter The Void, is just as ugly and cruel as his previous features but comes coated in a sheen of psychedelia and spirituality."
‑ Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
""I hated that" will be a common refrain among people leaving showings of Enter the Void. Don't be surprised, though, if you find yourself still thinking about the movie the next day."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Hallucinogenic, dazzling, depressing, daring and not entirely successful, "Enter the Void" is obviously out to blow some minds."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Broken down to its base elements, it's a detective-ghost story, not unlike M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense (1999), albeit one driven by some dazzling filmmaking bravado."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"... somewhere between an out-of-body experience and a nightmarish trance."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"...if you think last year's 'Avatar' broke boundaries, for every breakthrough James Cameron's film offers technologically, Noé's film does artistically."
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
