A documentary about visiting the Tokyo location of Gaspar Noe‘s Enter the Void and hunting him down in the city for an interview has been released online. The Enter the Void French Movie Trailer and the Enter the Void US Movie Trailer have already been released. The Vice Guide to Film was contacted
about Gaspar, who was shooting a film in the sex clubs of Tokyo while using the Japanese Yakuza mafia as his “locations managers.” According to Harmony [Korine], the film set was like nothing he had every seen before. Gaspar was given unprecedented access to areas of Tokyo (Shinjuku and Kabukicho) that are literally off-limits to “gaijin” (foreigners) let alone to camera crews. Somehow Gaspar negotiated his way into the neighborhood for 3 months to shoot something called “Enter the Void.”
This documentary is mucho fraked up because of some of the material they show but I love hearing the inner workings of Gaspar Noe’s mind. Who know Angst and 2001: A Space Odyssey were two of his most watched film. Enter the Void stars Nathaniel Brown, Paz de la Huerta, and Cyril Roy. Enter the Void is about “Oscar, 20 years old and a newcomer to Tokyo, and his 18 year-old sister Linda. Lost in their new environment, these young siblings are about to live a surreal experience.” Check out the doc below and leave your thoughts on it below.
