Enter The Void

Synopsis: Tokyo's nasty underside, seen primarily through the eyes of Oscar, a heavy drug user, whose sister Linda is a stripper. Oscar also has flashbacks to his childhood when trauma upends the siblings. Oscar's drug-fed hallucinations alter Tokyo's already-disconcerting nights, and after the police shoot him, he can float above and look down: on his sister's sorrow, on the rooms of a love hotel, and on life at even a molecular level. The spectrum's colors can be beautiful; it's people's colorless lives that can be ugly. And what of afterlife, is there more than a void?

ENTER THE VOID (2009)

ENTER:

Hey! Hey Linda, come here!

Come outside

I wonder what Tokyo looks like,

from up there?

- I don't...

- Why not?

- I'd be scared

- Scared of what?

Dying I guess...

Falling into the void

They say you fly when you die

Its f***ing cold

Hey, check out

this book Alex gave me

Its like the Tibetan bible

Alex the junkie?

Its all about

what happens after you die

Look!

So your going

to become a Buddhist now?

No

You know they're all the same

F***ing Catholics, the Jew's ...

Just a bunch of sucks

out to get their hands on your money...

Alex is gonna make

you a junkie...

and then he's going

to make you a f***ing Buddhist

No, he's just a friend

I'm not gonna become a buddhist...

Alex is a f***ing junkie.

He's not your friend

- C'mon

- He's not your friend

I gotta go

Hey, I'll see you later?

See ya.

Lock the door, just lock the door...

Ok, good

Why does she think I'm a junkie?

I know I'm not a junkie.

I know who I am

I know I'm not a junkie

She's my sister, sometimes

she doesn't know anything

There we go

This is the good stuff

Why else would Bruno

give this to me?

Probably wants a blowj*b.

Thats disgusting!

Who do ya think I am anyways

I know I'm not a junkie

There you go...

This stuff doesn't taste good

These drugs taste like sh*t

Wow! Its already kicking in

This is it... its started

Oh god, this is the best

What if you faint?

You're not gonna faint

I just know I will

You've done this before...

- Hello...

- Oscar... its Victor.

Hey, I'm looking for you...

Ah, can you bring my stuff?

Can you come and get it

No... I need you to bring it to me

Oh... Ok. Where are you?

I'm at the Void...

Y'know I'm really sorry

about yesterday, I'll wait for you...

Actually...

- Actually I'd rather if you...

- Don't be long...

Hello?

Hello?...

Oh, come on?!

Wake up

Get a hold of yourself

Oh God...

its back

Collect yourself

Balcony

Walk away from that

Keep your eyes open

My head is throbbing now

Its water

Water... Splash water

Splash tap water

Nice clean tap water

Its perfect

Back to normal

Look at your cheeks,

look at your eyes

They look different

Sh*t

Is that the neighbours?

Did they hear me?

Did I scream? Maybe I did?

Just calm down

Alex. Hold on

Hey Oscar, you alright?

Ah its good man,

how ya doin'

Nothing much...

Been pretty good, pretty good...

I think I need a shower!

Oh, don't go to the balcony,

stay away from the balcony

Hey, have you read the book?

- The book?

- Yeah

- Oh, The Book of The Dead

- Yeah

Yeah, haven't finished

reading it yet, its pretty good.

Its a wild book

I'm glad you like it

Can I keep it,

so I can finish it?

- No problem

- Oh thanks... thanks

- You okay?

- Ah... well...

- I bumped into your sister

- Yeah?

Yeah. Following that c*nt, Mario

I f***in' hate that guy

I can't believe she's

going out with him.

If she ever gets pregnant,

I'll kill the baby.

I swear to God.

Hey look, anyway...

Do you mind if we go and see her tonight?

I'd really like to see her...

Yeah sure

First we have to stop at the Void

I have some stuff for Victor

Wanna come?

- The Void?

- Yeah

I don't' like the place,

but I follow you...

...and we go see your sister

- Yeah, lets go

- Great!

- Can I grab some water?

- Yeah sure

Water!

You're not taking it all,

are you?

No, only his share

- Man, thats alot of gear

- Yeah

Sh*t!? Thats f***ing dangerous

You should let him pick it up himself

No, he won't come here anymore,

not after what happened with his mother.

- What? He found out

- Yeah...

- How did he find out?

- I don't want to talk about it

Alright, can I take the water?

- Bring it

- Okay

The streets are really empty.

Is it a holiday today?

- Hey whats wrong with you?

- You tripping man?!

- Yeah. You can tell?

Yeah, you look really f***ed up...

I popped some tabs this morning...

and just took a hit of DMT before you came...

Sh*t, looks like a good day!

And the day isn't over either!

Hey, do you think Bruno

has anything stronger than DMT?

C'mon, you'll fry your brain man!

You should finish The Book of The Dead,

that will be a lot better

but wait until you die,

then you get your big trip

The book is still confusing to me

How would you explain it?

Um, its really hard to explain...

basically, when you die...

your spirit leaves your body...

...actually

at first you can see all your life,

like reflected in a magic mirror.

Then you start

floating like a ghost,

you can see anything

happening around you,

you can hear everything

but you can't communicate.

Then you see lights...

lights of all different colours...

these lights are the doors that pull you

into other planes of existence...

but most people... actually

like this world so much,

that they don't want to be taken away,

so the whole thing

turns into a bad trip,

and the only way out

is to get reincarnated.

- Is that making sense?

- Yeah, I guess so...

I dunno, whats the bad trip?

well, you got all these nightmares...

you know, you go like, yo' crazy...

all your fears become reality

and it scares the sh*t out of you...

Its like whats

happening to your mind, right?

At that point,

you wish you never died...

And, some new lights appear to you

they represent all these couples making love...

and then a light comes out from their bellies,

and if you get closer
