WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL? / by Chris Tang

Shion Sono, director of last year's “Land of Hope”, a fictional film set in the aftermath of Japan's 2011 tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear disaster, directs the upcoming Yakuza flick “Why Don't You Play in Hell?”

In stark contrast to his previous film, Sono's new film centres on two rival Yakuza gangs, who agree to allow a group of guerilla film-makers, called the F**k Bombers to capture their Yakuza war on celluloid.

The film has so far garnered a number of positive reviews after it's showing at the recent Venice Film Festival, with those and the trailer promising plenty of blood and violence, coupled with a generous helping of humour too.

I can't wait for this!!
