    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Is this a tribute to Japan? A critique? A love letter? An homage? A glorification? A condemnation? A eulogy? A synonym?

    I don't know if it could be surmised into a single word, but the best I can think of is reflection. When I look in the mirror, I see myself, my surroundings, my flaws, my details; not necessarily me, but as close as my eyes can approximate. Shin Godzilla is the approximation of modern-day Japan.

    One of Japan's largest…

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Crescendos of cannons, choirs of traditional songs, the avant-garde musings of jazz musicians, orchestras held together by a thread.

    When writing reviews I always seem too keen on saying I've "never seen a film made like this before." This may be true, but the vast landscape of movies kind of already warrants this descriptor by its very nature. However, despite all of this, I have no issue saying that I have never seen a movie anything like Glauber Rocha's 1967…

    If you want a damn good review, go read Ben's. If you want my quick thoughts: Asano is hot, this was painfully brutal, and I loved it.

    The rest of this review is not about the movie, it's about the reason I watched the movie. Quite honestly, they're also the reason I've seen a lot of movies, and without them most of you wouldn't even be following me/reading this. This watch was for Ben, Brazy-Ben, Benjamin, sometimes Ken, etc.

    In one of his specials, Dave Chappelle quotes a passage that I'll never forget:

    Iceberg Slim is trying to control the woman that he finds uncontrollable. So he asks an older pimp how he can rein her in. And the older pimp says, β€œOh, that’s easy, Iceberg. All you have to do is beat that bitch with a coat hanger. And then run her a bath. And give her some pills. She’ll be so grateful that you fixed her, that…
