In what marks perhaps the most drastic creative pivot of his career, provocateur filmmaker Gaspar Noé is back in action with a new film, titled Vortex. Described as a “compassionate, profound drama” about an elderly couple battling age-related ailments.
“Unrelenting and inconsolable, with a smattering of compassionate moments, the superb Vortex brings to mind an observation attributed to actress Bette Davis, no less: Getting old ain’t for sissies.” -Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
