Gaspar No (born December 27, 1963 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentinian-born French filmmaker. His films frequently deal with topics such as violence, rape, revenge, pornography, homophobia, misogyny, racism, and xenophobia.

When asked him what are his favorite directors, he responds: "Pasolini and Fassbinder in the lead, but Murnau, Fritz Lang and Bunuel, or what movies he would take to a desert island." -2001: A Space Odyssey, of Stanley Kubrick, Un Chien Andalou by Luis Buuel, Eraserhead, David Lynch, and Angst.



He started in cinema with Carne, filmed in 1991 short film telling the story of a butcher who, to make a mistake and kill a young man trying to defend his daughter, is locked up in prison.

This first film shows already hisintentions: stir consciences, attesting direct stab to the stomach, telling their stories always from the point of view more raw and nasty of absolutely sick society.




In 1998 Gaspar directed his next work, I Stand Alone / Seul contre tous, which continues the adventures of the butcher, the protagonist of Carne. In this film the protagonist's release from prison and subsequent reintegration into a sick society that rejects him constantly, which leads to death butcher to hate everything around him.



In the same year Gaspar No directed "Sodomites", a short film without dialogue with very explicit content.



Then Noe directs Irreversible, his best known film internationally, telling the rape of a woman and her boyfriend's subsequent attempt to find the murderer. An extremely powerful and raw representation. However, despite this, it has been well received by critics.




In 2009 he directed Enter The void Again, Gaspar No gives a twist to the conventional cinema. "Enter the Void" shows the lives of two brothers come to Tokyo with childhood trauma and the promise of never separate.

His career is growing every day and is always surprising, this is a humble place to discuss his films, give opinions and talk about your favorites.

The title of this thread should be "God appreciation thread" and EHC should start a religion around it. ;)

I still can change it. ; )

Have you had the opportunity to see the segment he directed in "7 days in havana"? I think it is called "Ritual". I still couldnt view that film.

Enter the Void is seriously one of the crowning acheivements of modern film. It is a bit overlong and drawn out at points, but it is truly amazing. I have been meaning to see it on some sort of hallucinogenic...preferably DMT ;)

Nice overview, I had not heard of Sodomites. But Irreversible remains one of the most effective extreme movies I've ever seen. Absolutely brilliant! I Stand Alone and Enter the Void are also excellent. Well done, Gasper Noe!

It was a short film made in the context of the fight against AIDS and in partnership with the French Ministry of Health.

You can see it here, in any of these two places:

I've only seen Irreversible and Enter The Void. I'm not sure watching Enter The Void under the influence of powerful hallucinogenics would be the best idea in the world lol

Enter the Void has two versions, one shorter and one about 154 minutes long.
I bought the full version and was falling asleep several times. It wasn't a bad movie, but it was just too long. I will buy the short version and do a new review someday. Many of the film's segments was very repetitive and I think it was well needed to capture an understanding of the act itself. But it felt like a "Groundhog Day" meets "Irreversible" on drugs.

I think Gaspar No is one of the most innovative directors of "Extreme Cinema". I thought irreversible was incredible, however I will have to admit that I can only watch it the once. I can handle the fire extinguisher part, but the 7-8 minute scene in the tunnel made me really uneasy - and fair play to Gaspar as that was his direct intention as I've heard him mention in several interviews. I remember at first not thinking too much about it and it even being portrayed as slightly erotic, but then after a few minutes it felt like someone had kicked me in the stomach. Incredibly powerful.
