Luke’s review published on Letterboxd:
I wrote some notes while watching and usually I would structure them into a review but I have no clue where to start so I guess it will just stay as a random mix of sentences.
At the start and again at the end, Beethoven's 7th symphony was playing in the background, the same music in the popular aeroplane game 'War Thunder' so I kept getting distracted thinking about planes.
This was a truly innovative in showing us that there is no excuse for a two part film. Also it didn't get boring towards the end as I feared it would.
I was also impressed with the amount of content, the pace of the movie never really slowed.
With the name 'Love Exposure' I was expecting something deeper and more meaningful which is not to say I was disappointed, just surprised.
This is getting sorta creepy now.
About 3/4 of the way I just remembered that this was based on a true story and now I am even more confused.
This is the only Japanese film I have seen and it was really strange.
I certainly enjoyed it, although I couldn't say why. Maybe it was just so unique. I would be interested in comparing it to another Japanese film to see if they are all this strange.
To conclude: that was fun you should watch it.
