This is the third movie i've seen by the director, the first being Snake of June and the second being Tetsuo: The Iron Man.
I'd say this film is better than those two films, although i very much like those two films i feel this one blows them out of the water in a lot of respects.
It's a much darker vision than Tetsuo, it's really full of dread this film. So that may put some off but it's a really interesting film and is amazingly directed and for the most part i feel it's really well acted.
For me this movie is like the two other Shinya Tsukamoto films i've seen mixed with Ichi The Killer sort of things. There are a lot of things in here that it seems Miike Takashi knowingly used in Ichi The Killer, of which Shinya Tsukamoto stars.
Yeah, a confusing and disjointed film and a film of two or maybe even three parts but a really interesting watch and the context and the interaction of the characters is excellent.
I'd say this film is very worth seeing indeed.
