The Argentinian/ French auteur Gapar Noé has been recognised as a contributor to the rise in French Extremity cinema. Within the content of his work he explores deep, dark, and controversial parts of the human experience, having to use a variety of techniques to make the characters empathetic for an audience in the challenging, sometimes unbearable viewing content. There are arguments for and against his attempts to shape meaning as being successful and unsuccessful; he has a variety of creative techniques he uses to construct and explore narrative. I will use three of Noé’s films as examples to analyse; Irreversible (2002), Enter The Void (2009) and Love (2015). These films showcase Noés talent and track his development and further explorations of reoccurring themes such as love, violence, and drug use.
