Only one trailer this week but this one looks brilliant.
Milocrorze: A Love Story
Release date: N/A
Running time: N/A
Director: Yoshimasa Ishibashi
Starring: Takayuki Yamada, Anna Ishibashi, Seijun Suzuki, Maiko, Eiji Okuda
Having gained a reputation for being a bizarre and outlandish film even before it has been seen Milocrorze follows multiple stories told from multiple perspectives which are delivered with different visual styles. When you consider that the three perspectives include a one-eyed ronin from a samurai drama, an unconventional relationship therapist and a man-child at the mercy of a mysterious woman’s whims this looks like it could be similar to Survive Style 5+. Directed by Yoshimasa Ishibashi who has worked on the wonderfully demented Vermilion Pleasure Night and The Fuccons (see the bottom of my おもしろいですね column for the vids) and starring Takayuki Yamada (13 Assassins), this looks like it will be enjoyable and inventive and stands out as one of the more interesting films getting a release this year.
