This is a magnificent piece of work. The irony is that if you're reading this, you already saw it, and if you're not reading this, you're either a non-English-speaking Japanese person, or someone else who will never hear of this film.

Suzuki is one of the best. Always challenging, always rewarding. Trademark to his wild perspective is that he's called it "Tale of Sorrow", but it's so funny and entertaining. It's weird, cool, unexpected, sexy...everything a really jaded art-wastrel is looking for.

If you liked "Kill Bill", you need to see Suzuki's "Tattooed Life".

This film is Highly Recommended. Recently viewed: Documentary "America The Beautiful", Neil Jordan's near-perfect pulp "Interview With The Vampire", lots of pornography, Cannes winner "Dogtooth", Louis CK's amazing television show.

RIP Neil Armstrong.
