An English-subtitled version of the second teaser trailer for Shion Sono's Why Don't You Play in Hell? (Jigoku de naze warui) has been added to YouTube.

The screenplay for Why Don't You Play in Hell? was written by Sono. The movie stars (listed order corresponds to order in second teaser trailer) Jun Kunimura, Hiroki Hasegawa, Gen Hoshino, Fumi Nikaidô, Tomochika, and Shin'ichi Tsutsumi.

Here's a synopsis for Why Don't You Play in Hell? from the international sales agent for the movie, T-Joy Co. Ltd. (K.K. Ti Joi): "Two men 'Muto' and 'Ikegami' hating each other. ¶ 'Muto' desperately wants to help his daughter 'Mitsuko' to star in a movie. Meanwhile, 'Ikegami' falls in love with 'Mitsuko', knowing that she's the daughter of his foe. Getting dragged into this complicated situation are the movie director 'Hirata' and a young movie-lover named 'Kouji' and the story moves on to an unexpected direction."

T-Joy and King Record Co. Ltd. (Kingu Rekôdo K.K.) are scheduled to release Why Don't You Play in Hell? theatrically in Japan on September 28th.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailers for Giorgio Bruno's Endless Dark (Nero infinito).

Sion Sono's rousing, freewheeling, scattershot and ultimately astonishingly bloodthirsty film is a classic cult title that will keep midnight movie fans entertained and amused (as well as possibly a little bemused by its overly complex over-the-top shenanigans), especially as it really hits its stride in the final 45 minutes and revels in a sword-fight sequence that out-gores Quentin Tarantino's sequence in Kill Bill: Part 1.

There is something inherently satisfying in pairing gangsters and movie makers. While we await a serious film treatment of the subject, there are comic gems that point out their affinity, like the HK comedy Vulgaria about a producer who stoops to the unthinkable to make a porn film for the leader of a triad gang. That is a sophisticated work compared to Why Don't You Play in Hell? Totally outrageous but surprisingly successful on its own terms, this wild melange of yakuza wars and student filmmaking marks Japanese veteran Sion Sono's return to the Suicide Club genre, with farcical teenage rom com thrown in as an extra. Festival fans of his two vivid auteur dramas on the Fukushima tragedy, Himizu and The Land of Hope, will have some adjusting to do.

An alarmingly catchy toothpaste commercial is the only thing you'll care to remember from "Why Don't You Play in Hell?," a tedious, over-the-top gorefest that finds prolific Japanese auteur Sion Sono veering into sub-Tarantino B-movie-pastiche territory. Relentlessly jokey, strenuously deranged and conspicuously pleased with itself, this overstuffed yarn about two warring yakuza clans and an amateur filmmaking crew is an empty exercise in carnage maximus. Following last year's "The Land of Hope," a surprisingly sober-minded drama addressing the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Sono has delivered a picture geared exclusively toward his most grindhouse-oriented fans, though even they may leave feeling a bit let down. Bound for Toronto's Midnight Madness sidebar and Austin's Fantastic Fest, "Hell" will play in North American theaters next year via Drafthouse Films.


BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the theatrical trailer for Yoshitaka Yamaguchi's Arcana (Arukana).

[Twitch:] Is there any director you particularly love in the actual Japanese scene?

[Sono Sion:] No one, they are all boring and disgusting. All those who were respectable are dead. Nobody else does sick films like mine.

How about Miike Takashi, who is usually compared to you?

He's dead. Just watch his latest films. He was once a big director, but now he's kinda normalized.

And Kitano Takeshi?

God, have you seen his latest movies? He's more than dead!


Why Don't You Play in Hell? is scheduled to be screened at this year's Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) on October 11th and 14th.

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the English-subtitled trailer for Cristian Toledo's As the Crow Flies (El vuelo de los cuervos).
