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.
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.
