Why Don't You Play In Hell?


611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA


The once-in-a-generation filmmaker behind Love Exposure, Cold Fish and Guilty of Romance is back with yet another endlessly irreverent, wild and hilariously visceral big-screen thrill that’s almost too much for words. Even in a cinematic landscape where every second or third Japanese film is totally crazy-pants, Sion Sono’s body of work is unparalleled in its ability to seamlessly blend a melee of outré ideas with such a solidly humanist core. His latest to hit Stateside, Why Don’t You Play In Hell? is a love letter to the yakuza movies of yore, to the local Cinefamily-esque “film clubs” of his youth and to 35mm film itself. There’s a war going on, but that won’t stop the inexperienced, wannabe crew The F*** Bombers from making the ultimate action epic of their dreams. Their wish comes true in the form of a yakuza boss who, on the eve of his revenge against a deadly rival, bankrolls the Bombers’ masterpiece: a real, live blood-soaked gangster battle to the death — captured on 35mm! Infused with his trademark excess and outrageousness, this is Sion Sono with his talent and unique vision totally unleashed.

Dir. Sion Sono, 2013, DCP, 130 min. -
