Sion Sono Appreciation Society (Part 2 – Suicide Edition)

Genkina hito's Sion Sono Appreciation Society Banner

Regular readers of this blog will be more than aware of the fact that I like the films of Sion Sono. Earlier this year I had a season of reviews for his films in the run-up to the UK premiere of Himizu. I left off a major title, Suicide Circle, because I had yet to get its prequel Noriko’s Dinner Table but I recently rectified that by purchasing it. So this week there will be another season dedicated to him with lengthy (potentially boring?) interpretations/reviews of Suicide Circle and Noriko’s Dinner Table. I’m not alone in this endeavour because Goregirl will be bringing her considerable opinion to the table when we discuss Sono’s films in a number of podcasts.

In other movie news… I have the honour of being this week’s participant in the My Movie Influence strand over at Inspired Ground. I won’t spoil the surprise as to which movie I picked (you will never be able to guess it) so head on over and check it out. My thanks go out to Andina!

Anyway, brace yourself for some gore and existential angst for the next week and a bit as we dig into some more Sono films.
