As much as I love everyone involved in this, I don't know if I'm physically capable of watching it. Even the trailer almost made me vomit.

Fun fact: this is literally (not figuratively!) an Yves Saint-Laurent commercial.

No, seriously.

I think the ending temporarily blinded me for a few minutes.

This was my first exposure to Gaspar Noe. And although it would be easy to dump on this, as it doesn't amount to much (the theme, I guess is, it's amazing films ever get made at all when you look at the personality clashes), I'm gonna say it is a mild recommend for me.

I mean, if a director can pull a 51 minute film full of interesting scenes out of a damn fashion line ad, you have to respect the skills.
