Rousing and inspiring
21 August 2005 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Marvellous, rousing, affecting and inspiring documentary on the infamous Japanese photographer, Araki. Not totally convinced by the DJKrush original soundtrack or the editing but nothing can take from the content dominated by the impish little man with a camera and enough enthusiasm to carry the film himself. In fact he gets help from the likes of Bjork, Richard Kern and Takeshi Kitano and the whole party goes from start to finish in wild abandon slowing only to cover the photographer's wife's death in 1990. Explicit and controversial covering his bondage work and 'sexy housewives' as well as 'art'. Some philosophy along the way, not all of it half baked and certainly a film to watch should one's urge to take pictures begin to flag!
