Why Don't You Play in Hell?

Severed-tongue-in-cheek flick from cult Japanese writer-director Sion Sono (Cold Fish, Suicide Club) about a group of wannabe documentary movie-makers who inject their flash-mob filming technique straight into a yakuza-filled gangwar. Winner of the Midnight Madness People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Festival 2013.

Too much is never enough :)

Sion Sono, director of extreme Japanese cult hits, 'Love Exposure', 'Cold Fish', and 'Suicide Club', returns with a hyper-kinetic exercise in cinematic weird, that sees a film crew clashing with the Yakuza. In Sono’s world, too much is never enough, and nothing exceeds like excess. If you’re not put off by buckets of blood and hilariously over the top...

Trawls sub-Tarantino B-movie-pastiche territory with a tedious, over-the-top gorefest.

Irresistible trashy fun in a cross-genre free-for-all.
