Possibly the coolest film of all time. A ridiculous mix of sex, religion, cults and panty shots by one of the most over looked directors of the decade spread over 4 hours. It shouldn't work but it leaves you out of breath and hoping that every film you see for the rest of your life can be half as much fun. It's funny, twisted and at times completely absurd but also has a big heart running right th... read more

"27.11 DVD Rewatch Olen aika harmissani siitä että vaikka en pitänyt tämän alkupuolta lähes ollenkaan ärsyttävänä, kuten viime katsomisella (se oli tuon päähenkilön vika ja huumori tuntui vähän vammaiselta, jotain sellaista), mutta vastapuoleksi loppupuolella en voinut saada ihan kaikkea irti, koska tiesin lopputuloksen. Siltin ei voi kieltää sitä etteikö kyseessä olisi hyvin eeppinen elokuva jossa on kirjaimellisesti kaikkea, ja yksi lisätodiste siitä että Sion Sono on yk"

"17.11. Voisin sanoa, että tästä nyt on kaikki olennainen jo kerrottu ja on se vuosikymmenen huikeimpia mestariteoksia, mikä itsessään on kieltämättä totta. Silti haluan ilmaista täydellisen äimistynykseni sille, miten erilaisella tavalla Love Exposure yltää kohdallani täysiin pisteisiin mihinkään muuhun elokuvataiteen suurteokseen nähden. Periaatteessa kaikki ns. kauniin elokuvanteon säännöt lyödään ensiminuuteista asti täysin läskiksi, ja kokonaisuus lähentelee jotain"

"14.10.2012, DVD Tämä elokuva on kyllä niin oma juttunsa etten oikeastaan voi sanoa tästä yhtään mitään. Ehdottomasti 2000-luvun siisteimpiä elokuvia mistä ei kyllä keksi yhtään pahaa sanottavaa. Leffa osaa olla niin hyvin vakava, hauska, pelottava ja monta muuta asiaa että huhhuh. Elämäni nopeimmat neljä tuntia ehdottomasti."

"13.10. Ei mitään erikoisempaa sanottavaa mitä ei olisi jo muut tästä kommentoineet. Kaikinpuolin siis erinomainen pläjäys, jonka parissa tuo neljätuntia ja rapiat pääsi vierähtämään lähes huomaamatta. "

"23.1 DVD Rewatch - ei muutoksia pisteytykseen Luultavasti paras elokuva maailmassa. Todella moniulotteinen rakkaustarina sisältäen ihan kaikkea laidasta laitaan, eikä nelituntinen ollenkaan tunnu puuduttavalta."

"29.11. On erittäin huojentavaa, että vielä vuonna 2008, kun Hollywood on uponnut omaan perseeseensä, voidaan jossain tehdä elokuva, joka on viittauksista muihin elokuviin huolimatta täysin omaperäinen ja ainutlaatuinen. Neljä tuntia kuulostaa pitkältä kestolta, mutta Love Exposure on rytmitetty sen verran täydellisesti, ja se vaihtaa niin huomaamatta vakavasta kepeään useita kertoja, että kestosta ei voi valittaa yhtään. Itsessään elokuva herättää paljon ajatuksia uskonto"

""Love Exposure" is fucking crazy. It's pretty much a glorious mash-up of everything one could associate with Sion Sono. Over-the-top violence, sentimental moments, brash humor, Sion Sono pulled out all the stops in this 4-hour-rom-com-epic."

"Directed by Shion Sono. Three emotionally abused individuals from the fringes of society get locked in a convoluted love triangle. Yu, a Catholic boy searching for true love ends up taking "panty shot" photos of women in public until he discovers Yoko, whom he sees as his Virgin Mary. Yoko, an anti-family, misandrist girl finds that her foster mother will be marrying Yu's father. Koike, an "original sinner" and the regional leader of a brainwashing cult, co-ordinates a plan to convert Yu's famil"

"27/07/2011 (DVD) Sion Sono lienee näitä merkillepantavimpia nykyohjaajia. Herra oli entuudesta minulle tuttu varsin toimivan Suicide Clubin myötä. Yhteiskuntakin saa Suicide Clubissa osakseen kritiikkiä ja näin se puhutteli katsojia hyvin laajalti. Love Exposure ei puhuttelevaisuudessaankaan ole poikkeus Sonon tuotannossa. Pelkästään elokuvan suuruus, 237 minuuttia, puhuttelee jo osakseen. Suhteellisena seikkana pituuteen, myös elokuvan nimi pamahtaa esiteltäväksi ruutuun vasta noin "

"Watched 7/3/11 Love Exposure is the strangest movie I've ever seen, and that's saying something. This four hour epic can be described as a drama / comedy / romance / psychological / philosophical piece. It also involves betrayal, religious symbolism, and plenty of panty shots."
