A good example of how the excess of significants and their translation into an hysterical formlessness can hinder and destroy a project with distinct and interesting scope, from the social to the artistic. Only, and only, an allegedly ridiculousness without limits.
How to sum up this astonishing film? It's a supremely bizarre, unhinged epic; a monumental meditation on life, the universe and underwear.. Themes of religious guilt, family feuds, covert cross dressing, sinister cults and martial arts-inspired upskirt voyeurism are touched upon. Alternatively, strip away all of these layers and what you're left with is a rather sweet and tender love story. Prepare to be bewildered..
An audacious, hare-brained epic. It's the dumbest smart movie I've ever seen. It fails at being relevant and insightful in the way it tries to be and accidentally reaches a profoundness of sorts by going so far down it reaches the sky and falls down a ways. I've never seen anything like it. Maybe the greatest novelty film ever made.
