Cinéma Viscéral: The Works and Inspiration of Gaspar Noé

The French-Argentinian director Gaspar Noé presents his sixth feature this November and to celebrate his unique and darkly twisted oeuvre, KINO presents a selection of his own work and the films that inspired him. We are proud to present a divergent collage of cinematic outings that influenced his work: from the trippy masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey (on 70mm!) and the anti-fascist shock cinema of Pasolini’s Salo to the ‘giallo’ chillers of Dario Argento, the Italian director featured in Noé’s newest film, Vortex. So join us in taking a deep dive into the visceral cinematic world that shaped the work of this singular director. Strap in, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

On November 5th director Gaspar Noé will be visiting us in KINO for a sold out double bill and to talk about cinema. We’re screening a preview of Vortex and Gerald Kargl’s Angst (1983), which was a major influence on Noé’s work and was banned for years, only to get distributed in 2015. After the screening of Vortex, our resident visual artist Baris Azman will have a conversation with Noe about his latest film, his cinematic favorites and of course, Angst (1983). Both films will be screened with English subtitles.

Cinéma Viscéral: Profondo Rosso (1975)

Cinéma Viscéral: Profondo Rosso (1975)

Dario Argento’s big international breakthrough was this ultra stylish and slick slasher that is full of cinematographic juxtaposition and grand setpieces that plunge you in a truly dazzling murder mystery where the hunt for a killer plays out concurrently with the assailant offing the people that could expose him.

Cinéma Viscéral: Angst (1983)

This brilliantly chilling but largely forgotten Austrian home invasion flick has managed to claw its way out of obscurity after being banned for decades, mainly due to the enthusiastic endorsement of Gaspar Noé. The director cites its disembodied camerawork and sudden burst of ultra-violence as a seminal inspiration for his own oeuvre.

Cinéma Viscéral: Irréversible (2002)

Gaspar Noé’s international breakthrough will always be remembered for the two shocking and prolonged scenes of (sexual) violence but it is so much more than that: the disorientating camerawork, the nauseating score by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and the brilliant casting of real-life couple Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci.

Cinéma Viscéral: Opera (1987)

Cinéma Viscéral: Opera (1987)

Opera is classic Dario Argento but with the added cinematographic trickery (the gunshot through the lock should look familiar to the Tarantino fan) and preference for animal attacks that seem to complement his work in this period.
