Japanese cinema has come out with some pretty strange movies over the years, especially the films by Sion Sono. His latest film, Why Don’t You play In Hell, is a Yakuza movie with a bit of a twist. The film focuses on a war between rivaling Yakuza gangs while also focusing on a group of budding filmmakers and their passionate need to film the greatest masterpiece of all time. The two stories intersect at multiple points to create one of the most interesting and hilarious movies that I’ve seen. One part Kill Bill and another part every filmmakers dream, Why Don’t You Play In Hell is a pretty engaging film. The Fuck Bombers are a group of young filmmakers that … Continue reading
