issei sagawa cash in
19 August 2003 | by 10166794See all my reviews

Hisayasu Sato was one of the most infamous of bad boy directors in the so-called Japanese new wave of the 90's. Some like Takashi Miike have become cult institutions; but Sato seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet. Still, when he WAS working he was something of a latterday Rainer Werner Fassbinder and very proloific... and as was the case with Fassbinders' films for a long time, it's really hard to track down and watch Sato's films. Which alone makes this film "An Aria on Gaze", sometimes boringly re-titled "The Bedroom" so important. If you like linear Hollywood stories, forget it, go rent some soft-core crap, this will bore you. I admit a large reason I wanted to watch this was to see real life convicted cannibal Issei Sagawa, who fled France to live a life of semi-celebrity in Japan. Sure, it may be morally questionable to watch him exploiting his notoriety, but I'm a human being and by our very nature we are curious beings. That's why we can build 'stuff' and dogs can't... but I digress. Imagine Rocco Siffredi directing a script loosely based on Last Year At Marienbad and you come close to imaging the world of Hisayasu Sato's stylised S&M collages.
