A tripartite mystery that drips with sexual tension, A Snake of June is all at once erotic thriller, through-the-keyhole peepshow, schizophrenic psychodrama, X-ray view of human pathologies, and strange romance.
Never turns the corner from being fantasy-porn.
...an unforgettably excruciating experience.
Any notion of Snake commenting on sexual repression in Japan is lost amid the nonsense.
Not exactly for all tastes . . .
... an intriguing and ultimately inscrutable enigma ... drip(s) with a bizarre eroticism ...
Tsukamoto has matured since his Tetsuo days and proves more subtly disquieting than younger countryman Takashi Miike
Mweh.. this is typically a movie written and directed by a man (don't worry, I'm not a raging feminist), so annoying. It totally missed it's goal. It's about the woman, taking control of her sexuality, or that's the intention I think, but how she's coaxed into doing this is utterly ridiculous.
That really is all I have to say about this movie.
Another creepy and unsettling Japanese drama from director Tsukamoto (Jijii from Ichi The Killer) who's brought such wonderful family classics such as Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Shot in black and white then washed in blue, the film is absolutely soaked in water--constant rain, sinks and showers, all running down into various drains. This is a wet, wet film; well, June is the rainy season in Japan, apparently. An extremely art-house film, with experimental-type camerawork and editing that makes it hard to follow at times...hell...most of the time.
Still, the visual style sets the tone for a story that centers around various taboos in Japan. The tone of the film, a mixed bag of pink films and film noir, suggests that the whole thing is headed for a bitterly tragic doom.
I'm guessing if you sent David Lynch to Japan to remake Saw this is what you'd get. Stylish, puzzling and pretty fucked up. I hated the better part of the first hour and nearly cursed this movie's existence. That metal dick thing was... I'm sure explainable only in Japanese. The more I think about it the more I like it. A Snake of June is very erotic and reasonably sexy (the Japanese she-mullet thing was a little rough.) Not amazing but definitely worth checking out.
Unique and captivatingly photographed, but turns out to be a complete waste of time, even at only 77 minutes.
There are some great moments, and the first half hour isn't too objectionable. It even has some really good performances to its credit. Unfortunately, Shinya Tsukamoto spirals into some bizarre fantasy porn land and the movie becomes little more than caricature after the half-hour mark. Sorry, not worth it.
