OMFG.

I TACKLED IT. ALL 237 MINUTES OF IT.
And it was glorious. Oh so so glorious.

I wanted to go see Sion Sono's new film Love Exposure at Fantasia Fest but when I heard of it, it was the day after the screening. I was regretted not hearing about it before. I searched everywhere for the english subs and lo, behold. I managed to get a copy of it. I was a bit intimidated at first by the running time (4 hours) cause usually long hours means they're filled with useless scenes (I'm looking at you, Jodhaa Akbar >:() Apparently, this story was inspired on one of Mr. Sono's friends who was into spy photography and this friend did whatever he could to save his sister from a religious cult.

But bloody hell, this is THE BEST FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE SO FAR. Those 4 hours didn't feel like 4 hours at all. By the end of it, I wanted more... I was gripping at the edge of my seat. It's a friggin' masterpiece.
Yeah, I know I say that alot but I'm serious. I'm really serious.

I don't know how to define this film.. it's a romantic comedy with EVERY GENRE POSSIBLE. And man, did Mr. Sono pull it off.

Check out the trailer. The trailer speaks for itself.

Yes, it stars one of the guys from the jpop group AAA.

Trust me, you won't regret watching this film. 


ETA: Happy belated Eid :)
