Love Exposure

Love Exposure ★★★★½

December 2020 Scavenger Hunt

Similar to Andrei Rublev, this mammoth of a film covers so much ground and talks about so many things; religion, in particular (I mean, both films even quote Corinthians). Albeit in a much different way, Tarkovsky's thematic workings about the artistry of a painter compared to that of Sono's in the artistry of an up-skirt photographer, for instance.

Sion Sono might be one of the craziest directors out there, considering how courageous it is to make such an intelligently profound, yet uniquely farcical, piece of art that, at its core, is centred around an erection.
