Teenage Hooker Became Killing Machine ★★★★½

Ms. 45 goes Robocop in a sublime avant exploit way. A new body to follow new images and textures. One of those rare films who seems to be constant reinventing its forms. It is cheap looking video keeps find unexpected and abrasive lighting schemes that are the most radical use of then new digital technology outside of Godard’s In Praise of Love. In its dirty and low rent way it is full of a demented charm that Takashi Miike wishes he could conjure. A true laboratory of forms, if a gross and cheap one. 15 years later, it remains one of the great found objects of the 00’s.
