  1. Doe Deer's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    to watch this is to be steered down a vicious and lynchian wonderland - an abyss luring us in with its entrancing light and unrestrained lust, personified by a painfully visceral character which lays bare the very essence of the film. the "castle" loses its original symbolism to acquire a (perhaps) more sinister one

  2. Luca Angelini's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Malgré son salutaire et bienvenu penchant pour mettre à nu et dénoncer les tares et les hypocrisies de la société nippone, le foisonnant metteur en scène Sion Sono n'arrive pas toujours à structurer son récit qui s'éparpille trop souvent dans une outrancière surabondance de faits et de situations surnuméraires. Dommage... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  5. Michael Diers's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Ein Film mit vielen Ansätzen für verschiedene Interpretationen, der zur Diskussion nach dem Anschauen anregt. Teilweise ist er etwas überzogen dargestellt und hängt von seine Ausdruckskraft her hinter Sion Sonos "Love Exposure" ein wenig zurück. Aber Anschauen ist trotzdem fast schon Pflicht.

  6. Abi's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    As you know this one is a limited version. However, I liked the movie, except the ending. The previous movie, "Cold Fish", is more structured.

  7. Greenhorn's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    In was for a shit one might guess. Life is different. This film is an example.

  8. Harrywolf Krstl's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  10. wiwitaek's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    This movie put an end beautifully to The Hate Trilogy but somehow I get shallow and weird thought: The Hate Trilogy represent Sion Sono hatred toward his country which he think it would continue in years to come?

  11. rakez's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Creating universe within the existing world!!

  12. emanuela's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    quanto è malato it is so sick. capolavoro della perversione.

  13. SBERB's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  14. bulgrin's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Way too long. I tend to a 2.5 star for the style, but too self-referential, no idea to put together a tight film with a straight point, and very indecisive. It's hard to not falling asleep while watching.

  15. Siaudebert's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Sex-workers, how they scenarize their lust for power and how it hurled them to decay. Interesting caracters. But not the best of Sono Sion, not even in line.

  16. Call me Drella's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  17. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Sometimes an actor or actress shows up in the middle of a movie and galvanizes it, erupting (or disrupting) like a volcano, eclipsing every other player onscreen. Makoto Togashi, as the pervertedly deranged Mitsuko, does the deed here, and it's glorious.

  18. José Neves's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    The contemporary Japanese cinema entertains itself doing fool and weird, something that rarely ever happened before and that once earned it a top spot. We should look up at the South Korean films for what is obviously missing here.

  19. Absentia's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  20. Palmat's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    Great movie! Watch this instead of von Trier's Nymphomaniac travesty if you want to see a dark exploration of sexuality and repression.

  21. Ostermyers's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    I hope Rampo Edowaga is proud of his legacy. If he can watch this from his own jigoku.

  22. N!nA's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

  23. Jason's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    A vision of merciless counter-romantic despair. Totally of our time. Not irony-free but for Sion this is as close as it's gonna get to irony-free. A film of "body." A film beyond "body." A consolation for those who have been victimized yet refuse to be "victims."

  24. Criss Fletcher's rating of the film Guilty of Romance

    A wonderfully visual fall from grace. The character development is satisfyingly merciless. You can't help but feel you have your teeth deep in this beautifully shot film.
