NYAFF/Japan Cuts 2014 Mini Review: Why Don't You Play in Hell? (2013)
Sion Sono returns to a script he wrote when he was 17 for a wild wild wild film, even by his standards.
The plot of the film has a director given the chance to make his action masterpiece by a Yakuza boss who wants to make his daughter a star. Unfortunately the mayhem in the film is real and part of a Yakuza war.
I have no idea what to say but this film is as just nuts. Its bloody and off color and completely crazy.
Go see it if you can score a ticket (the screening is sold out).
