London’s review published on Letterboxd:
Just like the first time I watched the film, this time around I had an absolute blast with Why Don't You Play In Hell? I love films about passion and making movies, and Sion Sino somehow makes one that embodies both so well while also being a film about growing up, accepting your family, honoring people we have lost, and oh yeah, the Yakuza.
Probably the funniest Sion Sono film I have seen and it probably is my favorite currently. I love each character so much and as they become stranger and stranger so do their surrounding scenes, making the film truly begin to blend reality into fantasy, until you get to a point where you don't know where you are anymore. Is this real? Is this happening? I don't know but either way I am in love.
