That's kinda my take on it. I go back and forth on whether it's actually a black comedy, as the tone is still very dark, but it's definitely too outrageous to be taken seriously.

I've always wanted to hear a review from an actual Serbian horror fan to see if this holds any weight. If I remember correctly, the claim is not only that it's a metaphor for the sociopolitical conditions of Serbia, but a satire of Serbian cinema at the time as well. I just don't know that I buy it, and I kind of feel like it's all part of a big joke.

I remember watching a conversation on Youtube years ago between Nicolas Winding Refn and Gaspar Noe. They had a pretty fascinating discussion on a number of topics I enjoyed hearing.
Yup I love Noes work.
I am still waiting to hear more news about Ireversible. In UK Studio Canal own the rights and sold them to Indicator films so we should be getting a UK Blu at least of the "straight cut" and original cut.
I doubt it will be UHD but I hope its this year cos its been long due.

I believe him. As I recall, he said it was a commentary on the Bosnian genocide and the way that people would commit increasingly evil acts when sanctioned and rewarded by authorities.

In the movie, Milos gradually falls deeper and deeper into a horrific scheme because he wants the payoff, feels obligated, receives permission, can't see what's coming, can rationalize his choices, etc. There's a class dimension as well, since the scheme is orchestrated by and for elites. But as those who have seen it know, it comes to a terrible end for Milos and really costs him his humanity.

I fully appreciate this film as a creative work and am surprised when people say that it is nothing more than an example of shock cinema or of a movie being extreme for the sake of being extreme, because whether or not you like the movie, it clearly has a social conscience and a story with a moral. You might not think it succeeds or that the message compensates for how far the movie goes, but the movie has a lot more going on than just shocks.
