(Gaspar Noé, 2002)
Release date: 16 January 2023
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Perhaps the quintessential exemplar of New French Extremity, Irreversible amazed and outraged audiences across the world upon its release in 2002 with its harrowing scenes of rape and violence. Now Gaspar Noé’s nauseating, thrilling, ingenious masterwork returns in a new 2K restoration, both in its Original Theatrical Cut and a potent new Straight Cut, assembled in 2020.
