To get to the beginning, one must first get through the end, which is almost literally unendurable.
To cut Noe a break, it does become evident that he has a viable narrative concept. Told backward, á la "Memento."

Whatever else it may be, Irreversible is disturbingly unforgettable. It is impossible to have a blasé reaction to a film this visceral. Indifference is not an option.
After a while, a didactic overdeliberateness seeps into Noé's design, but there's no doubt that he's a new kind of dark film wizard: a poet of apocalyptic shock.
