While occasionally violent, as well as a tad surreal, Big Bang Love is not the usual chaotic frenzy typically associated with Takashi Miike. More drama than genre, it thoughtfully searches for answers in a crime being worked on by detectives, as they try to find reason for where none may be. The framing is wonderful and alone warrants a viewing.
OMG! Why is Trier in the Related films section?! This is nothing like it! Miike is WAAAAAY beyond Trier!
''This is my masterpiece...'' - Takashi Miike Truly is. A film that probably any director would be proud to say he was influenced by it.
A tangled web of a stylish neo-noir that's a bit like David Lynch doing a sci-fi update of a gritty gay sex whodunit shot as a technicolor "Dogville". Needless to say, it went down easy. Will temporarily satisfy fans of complex murder mysteries, sinewy asian boys, and strange cultish space travel. Guilty.
