#126 9 Souls Image
- Drama (2003, Japan ) -

Image

A convict in an isolated prison stumbles upon a hole in the wall and nine men break out. Some of the escapees have a definite goal but for others it is just a spur of the moment decision. Each of the convicts is carrying a baggage of difficult memories. The men take a van from someone they know and head for a primary school near Mt. Fuji to pick up some hidden loot, but when they get to the school, all they find is a small glass key in a time capsule. The men are dumbfounded. But, as they continue on their journey they begin to experience a strange new sense of possibility. Their thoughts turn towards the unfinished business in their lives before they were locked up and one by one they decide to act. But where will their resolutions lead them?

Image#127 Love Exposure Image
- Action, Comedy, Drama, Romance (2009, Japan ) -

Image

"Love Exposure" tells an epic tale of love, family, religion, and sex.

Having grown up in a devout Christian family, Yu (Takahiro Nishijima) has always been a well-behaved kid. After his mother dies, his priest father is seduced by a woman who breaks his heart, causing him to torment Yu by forcing him to confess his sins on a daily basis. Of course, being a fairly normal kid, Yu has no legitimate sins to confess. To appease his increasingly demanding father, Yu is determined to become a true sinner, eventually training to become an expert at sneak upskirt photography. Pornography being the one sin no priest can overlook, Yu gets the attention he's been so desperately seeking from his dad.

One day while hanging out with his fellow sinner pals-but dressed like Sasori as punishment for being on the losing end of a bet-Yu meets a beautiful girl named Yoko (Hikari Mitsushima). Their first meeting is a glorious one, beginning with an all-out street brawl and ending with a kiss. There are only two problems: she thinks he's a woman and a devious cult leader named Aya (Sakura Ando) is carefully manipulating both of their lives.

----

4 hours of epic winning ;) a must watch!

Image#128 Hold Up Down Image
- Comedy (2005, Japan ) -

Image

From cult film-maker Sabu, the director of the 2003 film Hard Luck Hero, comes yet an other wacky comedy caper, Hold Up Down (A.K.A. Horudo appu daun), which just so happens to star the members of the popular boy band V6: Sakamoto Masayuki, Nagano Hiroshi, Inohara Yoshihiko, Morita Go, Miyake Ken, and Okada Junichi! In the film, Inohara and Miyake join to take on the lead roles, playing Kimata Choji and Sagawa Yutaka respectively, a couple of hapless bank robbers, who make mistake after mistake in their bid to redistribute some wealth in their favor. One of the worst blunders ends up causing their precious get-away car to get towed right in the middle of the big heist! Dressed head to toe in Santa Claus out-fits, this not-so-dynamic duo decides to hide its cash "earnings" in a train station locker, only to discover that neither of them have the correct change to operate the locker itself! Along the way, the two thieves decide to steal from a near-by street musician named Sawamura Koichi (Okada Junichi), but to their complete surprise, he chases after them! Even worse, Hoshino Yusuke (Nagano Hiroshi) and Kiba Masami, two gung-ho police officers, decide to join the chase, along with Hiramatsu Masaru (Morita Go), a concerned citizen who becomes an interested party himself! Considering all this manic excitement, just how will it all end for these two Christmas-themed robbers? Find out in Sabu's Hold Up Down, an excellent ensemble piece for the famousr V6!

- Crime, Drama, Action, Comedy (1997, Japan ) -

Image

Sawaki is a postman who's not quite thrilled about his boring way of life. But his life is about to change when he delivers mail to his old schoolmate Noguchi, who's now a member of the Yakuza, the Japanese Mafia, and just finished cutting his little finger off. Sawaki stays only for a short time and Noguchi manages to smuggle a package full of drugs into Sawakis bag. And, like that's not enough, accidentally his separated finger falls into Sawakis bag too. Because Noguchi has been spied out for quite a while by the police, they think that Sawaki has something to do with his criminal schemings and decide to stick onto his feet. When Sawaki bonds with the fatally ill hit man Joe, it's clear for the police what he must be: A schizophrenic-paranoid, perverse drug dealer, murderer and even terrorist sent from the Yakuza!
