This is my most humble opinion on the filmography of Gaspar Noé in an attempt to catch a glimpse of his complex and most peculiar way of exploring Cinema and his even more complex personality. Enjoy!

- Gaspar Noé was born in Argentina but he lives and works in France. Experimenting with drugs himself, he creates characters that have their own personal ‘addiction’ of any kind.
He aspires to make movies that ‘disrupt and disturb’ the audience.
He is the director and the screenwriter of all his films.
He has his own cinematic style: he is in favor of actors’ improvisation, experiment with the angles of shooting a film, psychedelic colors and music, social nihilism, backwards narration in his movies, violence, drugs, sex scenes.
- He was influenced by Stanley Kubrick and after watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, he decided to become a director.
His movies belong to a film series called ‘cinema of the body’. This term is referring to films that break taboos and capture from real-time sexual intercourse to hardcore violence.
