    It's a film of two minds actually, two styles, two different wavelengths that crash and make up for two completely different films, or so I felt. All of the fantastical elements, from the island to the overstuffed ending are absolutely atrocious in terms of its images and dialogue. On the other hand, anything that happens from the moment they leave the island up to the first use of the sword to kill someone (I'm trying to…

    I said to myself "Ok, this time I'm not going to be a dummy dumb dumb and end up loving the new Christopher Nolan film". Alas, here I am, thinking it might be the (almost) best film of the year.

    Ah, yes, Sion Sono, you crazy bastard, you've done it again. I like this new wave of films that are more than they meet the eye. This is part of the Roman Porno Reboot, but I can't imagine Nikkatsu being entirely happy with this, as it pokes fun at the concept of the Roman Porno itself. Like a modern day Daisies, this film has layers upon layers of realities, in which you just can't fully comprehend what's…
