Clocking in at 237 minutes, Sino's film possesses a rambling, free-associative structure.
December 1, 2011
Manga-indebted but without lens trickery, this is exhilarating cinema experience.
September 22, 2011
This four-hour opus about the fury of love and the love of fury is ritually fascinating, often excessive and, with a caution the film wields like a blade, achingly poignant.

Exhibiting astonishing dexterity, Mr. Sono shapes all this trauma into a narrative that's completely coherent and surprisingly touching, never more so than in Yu's struggle toward sexual maturity.

It's a campy rampage that runs a few minutes shy of four hours, dooming what otherwise would likely be a bright future as a midnight movie.

As the old cliche goes, you will not have another moviegoing experience quite like this one all year.

Love Exposure is, in a sense, Shion Sono's equivalent of the Great Russian novel.

Love Exposure plays like a marathon greatest-hits-and-misses mixtape. If you see only one Sono film, check out this flick; you will have then seen them all.

Would the film be easier to take in a more condensed form? Of course it would, but then it wouldn't be the singularly overwhelming oddity that it is.

It's different, but it's exhausting. Without ever being funny, it keeps up a strident, cartoonish tone for all of its four hours.

November 6, 2009
A strange, deftly scripted brew, alternately involving and distancing, and often very funny.
November 4, 2009
A colourful four-hour rom-com that feels both small and intimate. And it's never dull for a second.

Complicated and long but deftly handled adventure/caper/satire that ends up being thoroughly entertaining.

October 30, 2009
A swooning, often riotously funny melodrama charged with a refreshingly perverse undertow.

October 30, 2009
Ambitious, inventive and endlessly arresting, Sion Sono's epic romance is a vibrant rite of passage, guiding us through a world of repression, hypocrisy and delusion towards true love.

Curious and tasteless, but never dull.

October 30, 2009
Deeply strange and politically incorrect, baffling, and often funny.

October 30, 2009
It's as mad as a box of frogs, but a strain of melancholy romance adds emotional backbone to the gags, gore and kung fu.

October 30, 2009
A graphic mixture of violence, heartache, sex and kung fu, Love Exposure is not for all tastes but there are wonderful moments.
