BY FAR Iguchi's most serious movie so far
At first, he was director for porns.
Then, he was director for movies which are so weird that you have to ask: "Was it made on drugs?" I mean movies like Dead Sushi, Zombie Ass or Robo Geisha.
But then came Ghost Squad and I'm impressed how improved Iguchi's work is. Sure, some widget moments here and there has this film, too, but it's far more serious than his previous works and some scenes are real heartwretching tearjerkers, which you wouldn't expect from this man who is known for crazy stuff like the aformentioned films.
As an Iguchi-fan, I'm accustomed to his narmy, absurdly, funny, silly and over-the-top "art", but here, he is able to show that he can make me not only laughing, but also dealing with more emotional topics.
I'm surprised. Should this be a great step for Iguchi's career as director or will he go back to Sukeban Boy?
