    Just as intricately impressive as Walking, yet definitely more rewarding with a larger scope and brighter color pallet. 

    Utterly tragic to hear this was Larkin’s final completed film during his lifetime a full 30+ years before his death, even!

I’ve always been a huge fan of bad Japanese comedies, but I honestly think I just found the crown jewel and new standard for the genre....but it’s way more than just that, I feel. This is the most blasphemous film I’ve ever seen and you’d think with the length and plot synopsis it’d be a trite garbage b-flick, but I’ve seen Sion Sono’s Antiporno so I know his style already and honestly it’s that dialed to the max,…
