Sono uses seemingly incompatible materials to construct a patchwork film as grotesquely hybrid as the corpses at its centre. It may be overlong and not a little bloated, but its sleaze both conceals and embodies moments of great sublimity.
I'm starting to get the impression that Sion Sono is just really good at dressing up nonsense. An indisputably talented filmmaker and gut-churner, he knows how to make the audience putty in his hands. But to what end?
Sono's wicked sense of humour still runs throughout Guilty of Romance, but there are also literary references to Franz Kafka's The Castle, a murder that would not have been out of place in Se7en and a whole lot of sex.
