"Visual and aural opulence." - Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

"The closing moments are such a disturbing outburst of light, color, and 3D illusions they might make even stereoscopic auteur Ken Jacobs avert his eyes. Ironically, however, this very act of destabilization gives Noé an ideal vessel." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire 

Provocateur Noé presents a visually bombastic and unabashedly incendiary commentary on the film industry, and misogyny within the filmmaking community, with hearty doses of witchcraft and techno. Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg are two actresses on a film set plagued with technical problems and psychotic outbreaks, which gradually plunge the shoot into chaos. Content consideration: this film contains extended sequences of flashing lights that may impact people with photosensitive epilepsy. Preceded by movie trivia, hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center’s Associate Producers!
