Promare ★★★★★

This film has everything I hoped for in a second Imaishi feature. Promare is bonkers, hyperactive, grotesque and madcap, a dream come true for those who chase adrenaline cinema, executed in such a way that it oozes unbridled quality and creativity. I'm a little afraid we won't see anything like it in years to come, although the somewhat surprising popularity of this film may put some gears in motion. Whatever happens next though, Imaishi made another masterpiece. I can't say I'm surprised, but I sure am relieved.
