    Hentai Land

    Loved it!

    A little documentary gem from Shozin Fukui that, while being a very straightforward documentary, has some aspects of Fukui's unique way of filmmaking.
    But don't expect anime characters to fuck each other here. This is not about the definition of hentai that most people outside of Japan are aware of. It's about the definition of changing yourself.
    It's about a model that we follow to various body painting artists. Where we then see her getting "transformed" into something…

    I'm sitting here and my body is shaking.

    Dear Sono Sion,
    I bow to you, I salute you, I respect you, I am deeply in love with you and your work. It seems like you still can surprise me.

    I've got to a point where I don't need anything new from your films to love them. Give me the usual Sono and I'll be more than happy.
    And here you are, giving me a film that exceeds my expectations again.…

    But, like I said. I wasn't bored. But it wasn't easy to get through the movie.…

    Well, fuck. I did expect something good, but that was way beyond that.

    Where do I even start? Over two hours long and it is a real slow burner (pun intended).Even I was skeptical at the start. I didn't know nothing about the film beforehand, so I was asking myself after some time when will the movie starts to get going. Without realizing how Lee Chang-dong built his world and his characters with nearly perfection already from the beginning. The…

    I'm serious. It keeps following me.

    There are no words to describe what this movie did to me ..


    I finished the movie 45 minutes ago and still have trouble finding words to describe how incredibly good it was. I'm honestly speechless, I'm shaking, my heart is racing.
    Bong Joon-ho created something that changed me, that will stay with me forever.
