Preposterous over-sexed version of Frankenstein, the best bit being when the relentlessly intense Udo Kier has a spear shoved through him which he clutches dangling his liver out of the screen and then embarks on a lengthy soliloquy.

Glacially paced, yet effortlessly gorgeous, meditation on passing and memory that is light on useful dialogue but heavy on loaded imagery.

Chuck D once asked me how low can I go? This film may be the answer.
I read about this one in Jonathan Ross' Incredibly Strange Film Book where he stated 'not many people would actually admit to having seen the film' and I should've just left it there. Instead I made the mistake of pursuing this marathon of nausea and can now offer advice on how to avoid my chronic error, never watch this film.

It doesn't matter how much you try to paint our government's actions of the time with sinister machiavellian overtones the whole fiasco does just boil down to an embarassing mixture of bumbling incompetency and unintelligent self-righteousness, qualities which seem ever present in their treatment of Britain's film industry.
This documentary does, however, remind me how far I have to go to in watching the entire DPP list. Everybody needs an ambition.

Thoroughly entertaining Triad vs Yakuza tale elevated to sublimity by a raft of deft miike flourishes such as a stammering gangster, somebody being drowned in their own shit and an ending that slams everything sideways with a giddy glee.

Crazed scattershot assemblage of surrealist imagery occupied with the usual themes of sex, religion, death, (re)birth, zoo animals and outlandish weirdness all overloaded with an unstable quantity of allegorical symbolism comprehensible by nobody.
