Viewers seeking titillation are much less likely to be satisfied than those who'll appreciate this surreal, aesthetically bold gizmo as the latest left-turn in its creator's idiosyncratic career.
It is chaotic, disturbing, grotesque. It is, quite literally, the antiporno promised by the title, daring its audience to enjoy the sex at the expense of its characters.
Anti-Porno is not only a big middle finger to the dangerous societal views of women but also the Roman Porno Reboot brand itself, thanks to its energetically layered performances, beautiful cinematography and surprisingly metatextual storytelling.
Few directors merge Starburst-colored exploitation and passionate manifesto quite like Sono, and so he rips through the genre like a T-Rex in a tea shop, subverting the expectations of pornography to make a garishly beautiful feminist statement.
Everything becomes fluid visually as events repeat with different power dynamics and realities.
Director Sono is too strong a visual stylist to let unfamiliarity with the deeper cultural meanings prevent any enjoyment of his frequently eye-popping audacity.
Antiporno has a kind of energy, but is also shallow and frantic.
Not one of the director's finest, but amazing in its own unique, erotic and alienating way.
Sion Sono, allergic to subtlety, is terrified that we won't notice his detonation of Nikkatsu's sexploitation traditions.
Saturated and abstract, Sono seems to be the perfect filter for the revived Roman Porno house.
Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono takes encouraging strides towards a more feminist outlook in Antiporno, his entry in film company Nikkatsu's ongoing roman porno reboot project.
Cruelty, masochism, parental abuse (in the painter's flashbacks) and schadenfreude of all kinds fuel this feverish op-art dream that turns on us at every corner.
