Love Exposure

Love Exposure.

Love Exposure is the latest film by Sion Sono, it caught my attention as it has received quite a lot of praise and won prizes at the Berlin Film Festival. Twitchfilm called it the best film of the year. It’s been released in the UK by Third Window Films.

So onto the film, it runs for almost four hours and it took me two sittings to get through it, it starts off fairly strong but it’s not too soon before it turns frankly ridiculous. Perhaps it’s a sign of my age but where once I found the quirkiness of Japanese films entertaining they’ve quickly lost their appeal. This isn’t to say it’s a terrible film, it’s not bad and brings up some interesting thoughts about love and religion but the second half quickly slips into a drag leading to a very unlikely and unconvincing conclusion.

I would say it’s probably worth watching if you’re a fan of Japanese films and it has an excellent soundtrack but otherwise you’re not missing anything if you skip this.
