Well to start off this film is not as disturbing as
most people whould have you believe,
The visuals of this film are amazing,
with so much going on all the time, its just a mindfest of
emotions and anarchy which help you to understand how the
main protaginist Tomo Tanguchi is feeling, and beleive me he isnt feling very good.
And the special effects, although some of them are dated are
absolutely brilliant, the masterpeice of the films SFX is when
tanguchi is strapped down to a chair, with his mind being
probed,and a gun forces itself through the flesh on his chest,
tearing flesh and sinew as it goes, its brilliantly done.
Now most people say this film lacks plot, and direction, well that may very
well be true in the way that the imagery takes front stage,because
this film seems more akin to a visual commentary, on how we humans
actually like to destroy ourselves and our loved ones,its about
human nature,and the human psyche.
when i bought this film i sat down to watch it immediately,
and while i was watching it, my mind was just racing,peicing
together all that i could see and it just got better as the
film went on and then when it had finished all i could think
was, ok I think this may need another viewing.
even if your not a fan of japanese cult cinema, your going to
enjoy this, if only for its visuals.
THIS IS ONE EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE ATLEAST ONCE.
