Love Exposure

Love Exposure ★★★★

A grand spectacle of 4 hours filled with crazy characters, an insane and drunken story, surprisingly fast pacing, mobile camera work, fairly fast editing, abundant music and a digital aesthetic that creates almost a nostalgic look. Humor, drama and action alternate flawlessly, there never seems to be a lack of a new idea, so it doesn't get boring for a second. Not that everything works equally well (especially in the second 2 hours), the humor is hit-or-miss, it mostly shouldn't spoil the fun. I don't see a real masterpiece in it, but the film offers so much viewing pleasure that it simply deserves its 4 stars.
