Suicide Club

Suicide Club ★★★½

Hoop-Tober 2021 Entry #24

There really is nothing like a Sion Sono film. It’s too easy to slip the “gonzo” tag onto any artist whose work straddles the line of garrish cartoons and meta commentary, over the top gore covering everything like…well, gore. The fact that SUICIDE CLUB still hasn’t been upgraded to HD (at least streaming, which is how I saw it) makes in a strange way for an even more effective presentation, as if I’m watching something that maybe I shouldn’t. The film that broke Sono to wider audiences is still just as weird, wild, and ultimately mysterious as it was when it was first released over twenty years ago.
