    Everyone should go watch his new film, "Climax", when it hits theaters. It comes out March 1st in the U.S.A.

    I agree with him on Black Panther. I wonder how he would have reacted to the reveal of it getting nominated for best picture

    Black Panther was mechanical and, yes, it features much of the grey machinery of the Marvel engine. But I think the movie is appreciated mostly on a social level where an all-black cast superhero film is able to cross a billion dollars in gross revenue.
    The acting was what you would expect and it is supremely passable, but the only silver lining to the experience was the retelling of the King's story and the literal manifestation of the "Black Panther" ideal through Killmonger. It was grand, yes, but very predictable and mechanized.
    Gaspar may argue on it, but I'd claim Captain America Civil War was mainly great for a brutal ending to the friendship of it's characters. The story leading up to it may be pretty mechanized, but that ending still stands as a rather bold and viscerally felt moment in any Hollywood blockbuster. Beyond that, most of Marvel's films maintain the status quo for emotional payoff, storytelling beats, etc. It is like an updated 'Star Wars'.

    Everybody who have ever seen a good movie in their life will hate Black Panther, its overestimated dumb action movie with little addition of afrofuturism, US audience likes it only because of a blackskinned cast. If u so racist to watch movies with white people, Better watch Blindspotting, than BP

    I very much side with Gaspar Noe here. I just straight-up don't care too much for the modern Marvel Cinematic Universe at all. I prefer the movies HE makes, as well as other movies along that line.

    I am sure every mainstream movie goer absolutely HATES Gaspar. And i can see why. His opinions are unique and off-beat. They dont follow the crowd like everyone else's numb opinion. Society has been numbed by television. This might sound trite, but its true. Harmony Korine and Gaspar Noe are independent thinkers. Look at their work. It speaks for itself. One is absurd and comedic, the other is sadistic, sexual and violent. All qualities of the world.

    I gave up watching MCU movies after Doc Strange. And truth to be told I had to force myself to watch many of these MCU universe, like really forcing myself like when you have to finish your meal as a kid but every part of it disgust you. I stopped the masochism, I'm no longer torturing myself watching these and I feel better.

    *yawn* A pretentious filmmaker can't stand imagination and prefers realistic material, cool story bro. Look I get difference in opinion, I had a family member who disliked sci-fi and fantasy and only liked documentaries of films based on a true story. If that's your preference, good on ya, I just think you limit yourself by only dealing with what is instead of what if. *shrugs*

    Black Panther was terrible. I don't understand how it was so well received. It was disappointing in that it could have actually been great, but it missed it's mark by a mile. The shitty trap music, the cringey references to a meme from 3 years ago, the horrible acting, and predictable story line all contributed to it being actual shit. The only cool thing about it was the afro-futuristic aesthetic. THAT'S IT.

    That's funny, as he was saying "action movies, sci fi movies, they bore me" I was thinking "man I wonder if this guy saw Arrival? He would probably like that and/or Blade Runner 2049."
    And then the one recent movie he calls out as good is Arrival!

      You do know that the guy who directed Black Panther got his start when he made the so-called "pretentious artsy fartsy" film. Which was quite good, actually. Actually, a lot of big- name Hollywood directors of today got their start by making "pretentious artsy fartsy". You have Aronosfky with "Pi", Chris Nolan with Memento, and Villeneuve with Incendies.

    I saw black panther 3 times and enjoyed it. I don't think it's as great of a movie as many people say it is (on its own and within the MCU), but no movie is perfect. Love the original Star Wars trilogy, dislike (not hate) a great many aspects of the prequels but watch them when in the mood for them, and hate most of the new films (force awakens was entertaining but weak on original story and character development [basically an equivalent to a mike bay film, say what is typically said of the prequels, but at least George TRIED doing something different] Rogue One was entertaining and did something different (but still flawed) so it was okay, and the last Jedi was the director taking everything set up by the previous film and threw it out the window while giving fans the finger, so it was the most insulting and was the first time I left a Star Wars viewing pissed off (I hated it more than any other movie I have seen in my whole life)

      Just watched the Trailers to both of those movies. I bet this Noe guy would have loved Black Panther if all the characters were on DMT and had Tits. Enter the Void is an Epileptics Nightmare and with Irreversible, if I wanted to watch a rape scene, I would rather watch George Lucas and Steven Spielberg Raping Indiana Jones. Just my Opinion :)

    so.....i figured this out......since Variety opted to not educate me, in favorable journalistic form, as to who, or, more importantly, what, Gaspar Noe is.....perhaps something to proper effect of...."Gaspar Noe, director of such movies as ''ones that ghost man hasnt seen"...i figured he was simply a festival goer, giving his randomly requested opinion.
    great concise reporting there, Variety.

      They were based off comic books. Which are by nature going to sound a little weird translated into film. Also cgi is kinda necessary when you have people like hulk iron man scarlet witch Thor and rocket raccoon and are trying to make them accurate. They’re good for what they are and are pretty faithful adaptations of the characters tbh
