Maybe it's just a result of me speaking English as a second language, but I always wonder exactly what "viewer discretion is advised" means. Does it means that the viewer should keep a low profile about having seen this?

Toei will release this on DVD in Japan on November 21st.

Not sure what I should think about this. Obviously it looks visually stunning but I'm not a fan of meta. Ishii did something similar in one of the ANGEL GUTS movies he scripted, the one about the exploitation director and the porn actress. It always strikes me a lazy and even a bit arrogant when directors make films about directors and the filmmaking world in the same way I also consider it lazy and arrogant when writers write about writers in their books by making the main character a writer, usually a struggling one. Very annoying. I'll still watch this once it gets a subtitled release and hope for the best.

And since we're on the subject of Ishii, don't go out of your ways to watch his films ORIGINAL SIN and MOONLIGHT ORCHID. There's a good reason these stayed in Japan until now.
