“I want to make movies from blood, semen, and tears,” says film grad Murphy (Karl Glusman), the alter ego of Irréversible and Enter the Void director Gaspar Noé in this very sexually explicit drama. Noé is one of cinema’s true alchemists, and he’d sooner die than sell out, but here his First Tango in Paris platitudes render the movie disappointingly soft. The big draw should be 3-D, which enhances the visual intimacy, though only in shooting a male orgasm does Noé go gonzo with the format. C+
