Love Exposure

Love Exposure ★★★★½

Love at first erection.

An essential desert-island movie. Wickedly hilarious, comically violent and profoundly interesting, this is the film equivalent of a 900 episode manga condensed into a 4 hour epic saga. Tonal shifts and genre conventions can take a hike because Sion Sono keeps jumping around storylines and tones with no fucks to give, prompting an exhilarating ride that never seems to lose steam. Part drama, part satire, part comedy, part action but wholly original, it's got everything you want in a film. Entertainment from the get-go, philosophy and action intertwined, revolving around religious dogma and corporate culture to sex and love, you can't help but ask yourself; how the fuck does someone come up with this?

Sion Sono FTW!
