    Japanese Girls Never Die


    It looks really good and Yu Aoi always delivers, but as a narrative this film is barely coherent. There is definitely something going on but I struggled to keep track of what happens when and therefore didn't really engage.

    I'm still very tempted to print that Yu Aoi stencil and tag it somewhere in town :)

    3 Hours Directors Cut meanders a bit. Too many notes ;)

    This movie...

    The middle part is like the most wonderful Christmas movie about
    brotherly spirit where no brotherly spirit should exist. It's such a moving, hopeful film.

    The ending is so incredibly sad.

    Song Kang-Ho is so natural, one of the most talented actors of his generation.




    I obviously haven't seen the whole thing, I'm not as strong as Shia, but checking in now and then on this piece of performance art was incredibly intriguing. You bring so much to it yourself by simply wondering what's going on in his head or playing your own score while he silently watches.

    Doing a live stream of it was genius because the hashtag allowed you to read other peoples thoughts and just watching them have fun and be captivated…
