Audience Reviews for Kichiku dai enkai
What little plot there is follows some kind of political student group on their shared descent into madness and sick violence. This is about as far from mainstream cinema as you are likely to get and most people are unlikely to enjoy it. Whatever pretensions the makers may have had are swept away in a sea of blood as the sickening scenes pile up. The last 40 minutes are pure gut-wrenching horror. The patient viewer is given an experience that will not easily be forgotten. Is it a good film? In many ways, yes, but not without its flaws.
Oh what a sordid tale this film tells. One of the few films to gross me right out. After being bored for an hour, I was suddenly squirming in my seat an being appalled by the images being presented before me. However, after the screening the director won me over. After being attacked by some of the more puritanical folk in the audience he shrugged it off, asking why they stayed. The angrier they got, the more he seemed utterly confused about why they'd be so upset by a film. That was nice seeing someone shrug off the whiners rather than justifying what he makes to them. He said he wanted his film to horrify and made no bones about it. Impressive, so impressive that I bought the DVD when it came out, but I still haven't gathered the courage to watch it. Maybe the rating will go up when I do.
