Enter the Void? More like stimulate the dirty nub in my mind!

March 9, 2011

I watched Enter the Void today and woo boy, it’s a nutty little film.

Here’s a description of the film (via Netflix):

Why am I stuck in a...why am I stuck in a...(k-hole)

“When Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), a foreign drug dealer living in Tokyo with his stripper sister, Linda (Paz de la Huerta), is fatally shot in a police raid, his spirit leaves his body in a hallucinatory odyssey that merges his past, present and future into a chaotic whole. This riveting third film from provocative French auteur Gaspar Noe screened in competition at the 2009Cannes Film Festival. Cyril Roy co-stars.”

Whoa! Pretty crazy, right? Even more crazy when you watch it, my friends.



(drugged out, porn filled, semen sprayed)





Anyhow. Films and books that explore what happens to a person when they almost die / do die, but come back, interest me. I “died” during a surgery when I was three. I vomited after my doctor gave me anesthesia and almost choked to death (hey. I see you laughing.) The nurses didn’t know what was happening, so when I tried to pull off the mask they were using to administer the drug, they held me down. Luckily, someone caught on to what was happening and I didn’t die, die.


Recovery took a long time and I’ve had night terrors since the surgery, but all else considered, I’m okay.

When I died, I didn’t have an out-of-body experience. I just disappeared then reappeared. After having that sensation, I’ve never felt at home in my body. It’s like my body isn’t mine.

*awkward pause*

Soo. Have any of you ever died? Something similar to a near death experience?
