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

Description: The story follows Yu Honda, a young teenage Catholic attempting to live his life in a faithful and orderly manner. His father, Tetsu, has become a devout Catholic priest following the death of Yu's mother, and operates his own church. Yu's father asks Yu to confess his sins, but Yu believes he is a good person, who has little to confess. At first he makes up sins, but his father sees right through him, and Yu sets out to commit real sins. Because of this, he falls in with a questionable crowd. Yu is taught by his new friends to steal, fight, and take stealth photographs up women's skirts. Yu promptly becomes a skilled "p ... (more)

"Eri tyylistä ilmaisua ja eri genrejä (mm. exploitaatileffaa) yhdistelevä romanttinen komedia ja pohdinta uskonnoista ja uskontokulteista. Tai jotain sinnepäin. Tavallaan tätä katsoessa tuli monesti mieleen että tämän mieltäisi paljon paremmin animeleffana kuin live actioninä. Monesti komediallinen ilmaisutyylikin on hyvin liioitellun animetyylinen efekteineen, näyttelytyylineen ja leikkauksineen. Välillä asia häiritsi hieman, mutta toisaalta kokonaisuudessaan homma joka tapauksess"

"20th of June, DVD Love Exposuren katsomista olen odottanut jo kauan ja vihdoinkin sain tämän käsiini! Shion Sono ei ole entuudestaan tuttu ohjaaja minulle, mutta tämän myötä kiinnostus miehen muihin töihin on kyllä noususuhdanteessa. Love Exposuresta on vaikea sanoa mitään, sillä sen neljän tunnin pitkään kestoon mahtuu kaikenlaista. Ensinnäkin tämä elokuva herättää positiivisella tavalla ristiriitaisia tunteita. Osittain Love Exposure on komedia, osittain rakkaustarina ja "
