This film is a one of a kind gem. If you want to see what Pinnochio 964, Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Meatball Machine, Electric Dragon 80000v, Rubber's Lover (etc., etc., etc...) would be like if they were even MORE insane... then, here's your movie.

Combining extremely bizarre and nightmarish imagery (ever seen an image of a gigantic eyeball from a slime monster superimposed over a bizarre doorway that sorta looks like it was made from line-drawing?) with a noisey soundtrack and TONS of surrealism and just an overall bizarre atmosphere, this is one of the best films I've ever seen. Really, it's the epitome of a perfect film: Never gets boring, a perfect length, and you'll always find something new to love every time you watch it.

I've noticed in recent years, there's been a renewed interest in this film. Hopefully I will live to see the day when this will officially be released on DVD in America. This is a lost classic, to be certain, and there's certainly an audience for it (albiet a small, art-house audience.. there's still an audience). Whatever means you can do to find yourself a copy of this now, though, don't hesitate to do it, especially if you're concerned with cinema that places emphasis on weird visuals over a coherent story. There, uh, isn't really that much of a story to speak of, I think, but that doesn't matter. There's so many weird parts in this film you won't mind (what's the deal with the random mosaiced faces?). Love it.
