I forgot how much I enjoyed this movie. I actually adore it! Even though it has so pacing issues. It contains so many things I love. Sexual perversion, surrealism, playfulness, weird animation, and alternative skit comedy is all on display!
The second half of the movie is the reason anyone's heard of it, but I think the gross-out and zany half suffers from some pacing issues. The hot spring girl parts in particular are a great balance of atmosphere, weird humour, some semblance of a story, and senseless shouting.
The Japanese are interesting and wacky simply by being themselves; however, "Funky Forest" is the sound of everyone involved trying too hard to be wacky and hip. The Caribbean-Mandarin music and dancing on the beach near the midpoint of this pastiche of shorts is enjoyable (i.e. following the scene in the still). The rest is a snoozefest.
