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.
Tidak seperti The Taste of Tea, yg meski surreal, tapi begitu heartwarming. Funky forest hanyalah antologi kegilaan2 jenaka tanpa arti. Beruntung Ishii dkk punya deretan cast gadis2 muda yang cantikny di atas rata2.
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.
