this is singlehandedly the best asian dark komedy ever
First, it surprises alot, and I mean Alot. The highest peak of humor falls down revealing bitter torn relationship. It gives you ticket through the wonderland and after the movie you just wish that the ticket was real, but you are grasping air.
Second, where Coen brothers succeeded in Man who wasnt there, Viva erotica is more like neo-purple hk replica, altough not losing its worth for its somekindness. Its fight club meets Blake Edwards, ultimate arc of crossfunctionism.
Even if you liked only one of above reasons, you should most definitely watch this movie. And in the case that you didnt agree either of my opinions, you should give it a try. And if you liked this or have seen this before, I salute you, you have experienced something truly extradimensional mind expanding pure matter. The origin of it all, Humor.
