This film is bookended alluding to a civilian gas attack: six years before it was made, the "doomsday cult" Aum Shinrikyo (with at height, 10,000 followers - including many university educated graduates) sarin gas attacked the Tokyo subway (13 dead) in March '95: after conviction its leader, Shoko Asahara (real name Chizuo Matsumoto), with "six other seniors", were finally state executed by hanging in Japan, 23 years later in July 2018. Six others remain condemned. [Japanese Justice Ministry 6.7.18.] See more »
Short but barely pausing for breath, this apocalyptic, cyber punk extravaganza is fun all the way. Bit of politics, some philosophy, lots of death and dying but mainly vigorous and sexy sex. Rock music, incest, bunny costumes plus Superman as anti hero, it's all here so if you are looking for a lively exciting one hour + you couldn't do much better. It goes without saying as a bonus that this film could have been made nowhere else but in the good old land of the rising sun. Did I mention the filling of a water pistol with the boyfriend's cum in her vagina and firing it at his face? Now there's something you don't get with Spielberg & Co!
