This film exists only to impress you.

There’s a war going on, but that won’t stop the inexperienced but eager wannabe film crew The Fuck Bombers from following their dreams of making the ultimate action epic. Ten years ago, yakuza mid-boss Ikegami led an assault against rival don Muto. Now, on the eve of his revenge, all Muto wants to do is complete his masterpiece, a feature film with his daughter in the starring role, before his wife is released from prison. And The Fuck Bombers are standing by with the chance of a lifetime: to film a real, live yakuza battle to the death…on 35mm!

The Back Row has an ongoing love of the work of director Sion Sono, ever since Tom Lando sat Robin, TK and I to sit down and watch the four-hour kung-fu romance epic Love Exposure many moons ago. Sono had a new film at the Fantasia Festival this past summer, but regrettably I was unable to see it. Looks like I can watch it now, though, because Drafthouse Films has released Why Don’t You Play In Hell? on VOD. And, of course, it looks absolutely insane. Gotta add this one to my queue…
