Possibly the coolest film of all time. A ridiculous mix of sex, religion, cults and panty shots by one of the most over looked directors of the decade spread over 4 hours. It shouldn't work but it leaves you out of breath and hoping that every film you see for the rest of your life can be half as much fun. It's funny, twisted and at times completely absurd but also has a big heart running right through it. I'd donate organs to see Sion Sono's 6 hour cut. WATCH IT!
Although over directed (how many times can you put slow motion rain into a bloody film!!!) it's a tense, unpredictable, heartkicking bunch of great. Takako Matsu gives an incredible performance part vengeful bitch part sympathetic crushed soul. If you can see it without knowing too much you'll be gripped and shocked
from the very start, read the synopsis and it kills the first 20 minutes of the film. It's not for everyone, if your looking for happy happy people, with happy happy lifes with no sign of gloom then walk on by and go watch a Jennifer Aniston movie.
