ESCHER DORI NO AKAI POSUTO
Japan | 2020 | Sion Sono
Prolific, subversive Japanese cult director Sion Sono (Suicide Club, Love Exposure) is finally starting to find an audience in the U.S. (His first English-language film, Prisoners of the Ghostland starring Nicolas Cage, was released on 9/17.) Red Post, the film Sono made right before Ghostland, is a madcap comedy-drama in which a bevy of aspiring actresses audition for parts in a new movie by a prominent and acclaimed arthouse filmmaker. But life impinges upon art. “An exhilarating postmodern comedy...An orgiastic celebration...Mega-satisfying and weirdly sweet.” –IndieWire. “A love-letter to cinema itself, its makers and, more than anything else, its performers.” –Brooklyn Rail. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 148 min.
