From director Gaspar Noé (IrreversibleEnter the VoidLove 3D) comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one wintry night. In Climax, a troupe of young dancers gathers in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benoît Debie (Spring Breakers; Enter the Void) and shot by Noé himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they've been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown. Starring Sofia Boutella (Atomic Blonde) and a cast of professional dancers, Climax is Noé's most brazen and visionary statement yet.

It’s FULL OF EPIC BOMBAST, (he even claims that it is based on a true story) jolting you out of complacency with shock, colour and music. Read full review-Katie Driscoll, CineVue

“It’s all INSANE AND INTOXICATING, and what’s perhaps most remarkable is that, ultimately, the ugliness and excess is legitimized by being in the service of an elaborate and ecstatically realized celebration of dancing as an art form. Read full review”-Giovanni Marchini, The Film Stage

“Gaspar Noé’s REMARKABLE PSYCHEDELIC RIDE IS HIS MOST FOCUSED ACHIEVEMENT, a concise package of sizzling dance sequences and jolting developments that play like a slick mashup of the “Step Up” franchise and “Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom,” not to mention the disorienting cinematic trickery of Noé’s own provocative credits. Read full review-Eric Kohn, IndieWire
