shark skin man and peach hip girl; didn't even know what was going on.
Ishii's style is pretty off-the-wall and somewhat confusing, but the films are quite entertaining. If you liked it in anyway, check out some of his other movies.
The Taste of Tea http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Taste_of_Tea
Funky Forest http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0451829/
Party 7 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0267817/
And while not by Ishii, Survive Style 5+ is quite similar to his style, it also features Tadanobu Asano, but that's not saying a lot because he's in almost everything. Oh, Reika Hashimoto in this movie is .
if you enjoyed inception, go watch paprika. inception completely stole the concept, and scenes.
Did it really? I haven't seen Inception, but I had heard they weren't all that similar outside of the fact the people were entering dreams. Satoshi Kon's passing this summer was really unfortunate. I hope The Dream Machine does come out, because I'd love 'just one more' Satoshi Kon film.
