Bullet Ballet

Just watched Shinya Tsukamoto's BULLET BALLET. This is a movie about a guy who become obsessed with a certain kind of gun, because his girlfriend killed herself with the same type of gun. I love Tsukamoto's films, but this one seemed a little hard to follow. Of course this isn't a drawback, because most of his films are hard to follow and demand at least 2 viewings (in defense of the movie, I was very tired and beginning to drift asleep, but I forced myself to stay awake until the end). Tsukamoto is a rare breed among filmmakers, taking on the roles of director, producer, writer, editor, art-director, and cinematographer.
