A list of some obscure, twisted, fucked up movies that i sorta like. How many have u watched?
A Japanese man wakes up alone in a brightly illuminated white room with no windows or doors. When he presses a mysteriously phallic protuberance that appears on one wall, a pink toothbrush materializes from nowhere, clattering to the floor and setting in motion a genuinely bizarre chain of events. Soon the imprisoned man is engaged in absurd and hilarious attempts to escape the gleaming room, releasing random objects from the walls, creating a life sized mouse trap game in which a rope, a toilet plunger and an earthenware jug full of sushi might just be the keys to his escape. Meanwhile, in a dusty town, a green masked Mexican wrestler known as Escargot Man prepares for an important match.

After catching 'Man of Steel' last week I thought I'd have to go years before witnessing something so overloaded with phallic imagery... boy was I wrong
Impossible to summarize the plot of this surreal dreamlike oddity. Its a day-glo, videodelic, Gilliam-like Kafkaesque nightmare. Imagine 'Metamorphosis' only if Gregor Samsa had awoke as a cartoon/anime character instead of a bug. Then ran himself off the page of the story... you know like they used to do in vintage looney tunes regularly.
Hitoshi Matsumoto's 'Symbol' is one hell of an enjoyable movie, it weaves two separate stories into one…
"Symbol" is a japanese comedy from 2009 that might very well be the definition of the word odd.
It features two separate stories. One is pretty uninteresting and bland and features a mexican wrestler preparing for a fight.
The really weird and interesting part is the other (main) story about a japanese man who's trapped in a white room. There are dozens of little white angle penises on the walls and whenever the man touches one a seemingly random item comes out of the walls.
After some time has passed he figures out that he can use these objects to break out of the room and finds quite hilarious ways to combine them in his efforts.
"Symbol" uses some cool…
Pretty hilariously weird... until the end... a bit unsure of what it's saying... or to be more clear, I think I know, but not sure how that fits exactly
Symbol is one of the most bizarre comedy's out there, set with a man trapped inside a white room surrounded by angel penises which when touch reveals different items, people and events whilst also affecting people outside of the white room. Some people maybe familiar with Matsumoto as being half of comedy duo downtown, fans of downtown can expect the same style of slapstick comedy. The only downside of the film is the alternate plot of the wrestler even though it is a key part too the film the scenes focused on the wrestler can be boring and I found myself wanting to go back to Matsumoto trapped in the room.
The word Random doesn't even begin to explain this. Did I just watch a film, or an experiment of sorts?
'What the fuck' pretty much sums it up.
It's also a laugh-out-loud experience when watched with a group or a friend.
Matsumoto builds up an entire movie over a single visual gag, and somehow he manages to make it work.
To quote our nameless protagonist, "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?"
I think I might have a good idea, actually. But that doesn't mean I'm going to tell you. I went through a lot of trouble to watch this film and it was totally worth it.
I love this film more each time I see it. It's not like anything else, completely unique, funny and thought-provoking.
This is the weirdest thing i've ever watched in my life and i absolutely enjoyed it
Busques una comedia diferent, única i molt, molt, molt surrealista? No busquis més, aquí la tens. Un constant WTF.
PD: Consell: millor veure-la sense saber-ne res. Aixi la sorpresa és més majuscula.
No sé como se me había escapado del radar Matsumoto. Aún no estoy seguro de lo que vi, pero esto es todavía más extraño que "Big Man Japan". Es una comedia de ciencia ficción que bien podría ser influenciada por "El cubo". También tiene una subtrama con un luchador mexicano cuya hija es una monja lepera que se fuma sus Alas. Y aquí las "trampas" son activadas por los penes de los querubines, los cuales se avientan pedos. En papel el cine que propone Matsumoto no debería funcionar, pero este tipo tiene toneladas de ingenio. Y disculpe las groserías y la falta de mejores palabras, pero es que aún no estoy seguro de qué chingados vi.
Doesn't stick the landing but damn if there aren't some riches to be had within. Not often in contemporary cinema am I reminded of Chaplin.
