Climax review – bad trip at the danse macabre

It’s purportedly based on the true story of a dance troupe’s descent into drug-addled delirium, although the result looks like it was torn straight from Noé’s twisted cinematic imagination. As always, he’s out to provoke, with gleeful teaser posters screaming: “You despised I Stand Alone, you hated , you loathed , you cursed , now try Climax”, accompanied by an image of the Argentina-born, Paris-based...

In the 1990s, in a special kind of civic carnival, council-owned tower blocks were garlanded with the banners of demolition contractors. Explosives were set. Crowds would then gather at a hopefully safe distance. There was anticipation, as before a firework display, until – kerplunk! – the former homes of hundreds descended like stumpy ballerinas into spreading skirts of dust. As the received wisdom was that tower blocks were a Bad Thing, there was little inhibition about celebrating their destruction. Times change. The finishing touches are currently being applied to two blocks, 20 and 16 storeys high, commissioned by the London...
