Film: "Enter the Void"

Anyone else seen this movie?
Intensely psychedelic, and also very dark......has obvious connections to the so-called "Tibetan Book of the Dead."

I really loved it--though it's not for the squeamish.

རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Cone--That film didn't do much for me--perhaps I need to see it again. I found Coppola's "Youth Without Youth" much more artful AND provocative.
