“Noé is like Kubrick crossed with de Sade in the age of underground vérité porn; (…) After a while, a didactic overdeliberateness seeps into Noé’s design” Owen Gleiberman: Entertainment Weekly
“The performances certainly don’t stir up much emotion. Except for the sodden Mr. Dupontel — whose shadings of remorse bring the only real feeling to the film’s morbid intensity — no one else creates a character. And it’s why ‘Irréversible” is ultimately forgettable” Elvis Mitchell: The New York Time
