I literally feel like I just saw the trippiest movie of my entire life. If you guys have heard of Climax, this shit was literally insane. Went to Edwards Alhambra Renaissance 14 w/ the broskee. We were debating this movie or Alita: Battle Angel a few Sundays ago, & ended up seeing the latter because Climax was only playing at Arclight Hollywood. Crazy that it’s in national theaters now.
Where do I begin? Well, it got 75% on Rotten Tomatoes which is definitely a good sign. It’s also only an hour and 35 minutes so it’s sounding great right about now. But once you’re inside, you’re literally trapped. First off, it’s in French with subtitles. It was kind of lit actually, I love hearing people speak in different languages. They had a few moments of English, but for the most part it’s all EDM music & a lot of fucking nonsense.
IMDB plot: French dancers gather in a remote, empty school building to rehearse on a wintry night. The all-night celebration morphs into a hallucinatory nightmare when they learn their sangria is laced with LSD.
What trips me out is the whole entire time, we’re trying to figure out what drug they’re on. Turns out, it’s LSD. But honestly, as a former acid-lover, LSD doesn’t make you do that shit. My bro said if you take enough of it, but I still disagree. They were killing people here. I mean, it was “drug-laced sangria” in a room full of crazies, so I guess there’s a high-chance of death. But man, this film got me fucked up.
Whoever is the French director who did this, props to you. I’m speechless. Please lmk if you’ve seen it, I need to vent.
