If you’re in LA you have three more nights to catch Sion Sono’s epic four hour ode to upskirt photography, love, family and religion in theaters. The Cinefamily is hosting the ONLY American theatrical release of Love Exposure, and they’re showing it through the 20th.
I still haven’t caught the movie (I’ll be attending this week!), but it’s a movie that is almost universally beloved; Twitch called it a masterpiece. Check out the effusive praise at Rotten Tomatoes.
I know that a four hour movie sounds like a real investment - and it is. But it’s the kind of challenge to which real movie lovers rise, especially when the word of mouth is so endlessly positive. I can’t wait to finally check this one off my list of shame.
