    Love Exposure

    ★★★★★

    I don't know if it's even possible to talk about this film in a short review like this one.
    Love Exposure is epic, funny, innovative, fresh, disturbing, shocking, heavy, bloody, crazy, hilarious, dramatic, sad, long, poetic, monumental, odd, clever, thrilling, weird, beautiful, during it's 4 hours of runtime not one second boring, and so so so much more...
    You really can't describe it. You have to see it!

    Definitely one of my favorite films. Can't wait to see more from Sion Sono.

Also, the writers didn't seem to be so sure if their main character should be a likable idiot or just an asshole.

    ★★½

    Okay, let's start with something positive: This is not a total disaster. It has some pretty solid action scenes and the actors do their job pretty well. Also, it really doesn't hold back with portraying violence, but without exaggerating too much.
    Otherwise, this is a pretty horrible sequel. Sheridan decided to throw pretty much everything that made the first film so special overboard and takes a position that in retrospect makes it unclear what his intentions with the original were.…
