To describe the film might imbue it with a coherence to which it doesn't aspire.
Most of the sketches fall flat.
There are Bollywood movie musicals that are shorter and more coherent.
Being "random" doesn't equal being funny, creative or interesting. Let this movie be a lesson for anyone thinking "random" means good.
Ignore the synopsis on Flixster, this is a series of silly, strange or outright bizarre sketches by three Japanese directors, loosely linked by sharing the same actors/characters. It started off very badly indeed, then it grew on me and suddenly I found myself with a big grin on my face. A two minute intermission with countdown and music, more grins then bemusement, a WTF or two and then it finished. If you like those late-night alternative comedy TV sketches, Japnese humour or puzzling your friends , then definitely try this. If you lke conventional plots and punchlines, then don't.
Essentially, a set of absurdist short films from three different directors, sharing some of the same characters, arranged into a sort of surrealist SHORT CUTS. The experiment produces exactly what you would expect: a very mixed bag, with many segments that drag on and on and go nowhere, and a sprinkling of truly delightful moments (most notably the musical numbers and the animation).
Saw this one at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival and it ranks up there along with Schizopolis and a midnight showing of Army of Darkness as my favourite theater experience. Surreal, hilarious, stylish and lots of fun, this is a perfect cult film with lots of opportunity for audience interaction. As always Tadanobu Asano and Susumu Terajima (who is quickly becoming one of my favourite actors) were excellent.
