My biggest criticism of Noe is probably his (treatment of) female characters in general... I could do without Irreversible all together to be honest and the only thing that is so amazing about enter the void is the visuals and cinematography.
Another very worthwhile follow (and a person whose work I plug on the reg) - the multi-talented artist and filmmaker Jillian Iscaro/iscaro/ctso.
I don’t remember much of Linda in Enter The Void. If I watch Irreversible or I Stand Alone, I’ll definitely look closely at Noé’s pattern with his female characters.
Hung out with Dead and Immortal this evening, talked about film and feminism and life things. Great success! Next time he’s in town, let’s have one of those tumblr meetup things with local film bloggers. Maybe even time it up with a screening?
Shout-out to the gals of feministfilm, IRL pals of D&I, who are def invited to Chicago to party any time.
