Our favorite enfant terrible (and this year we have a few of them) is back with a musical that’s also a journey to the underworld. Gaspar Noé takes the dancers from a dance company and locks them up in a club where, over the course of a night, a rave will take place among happy feet and various atrocities. Among other things, Climax is a stunning exercise in style, with two of the very best dance scenes in recent years.
