  • Dead Sushi DVD Review | Blueprint: Review
    Girl Reading up on the film in the programme it sounded pretty messed up and I could hear alarm bells ringing in my head as the lights dimmed 96 minutes later I was raving about the film to anyone who would listen though Its over the top nature and total disregard for logic or realism made the fountains of blood all part of the fun bringing back those loving memories of watching Braindead on VHS in the mid nineties This was my first introduction to the work of Noboru Iguchi and the new wave of Japanese splatter movies which took the nation s reputation for controversial graphic filmmaking and stripped it of any traces of class artistry and reverence Over time I ve watched quite a few of the titles from Iguchi and similarly inclined directors such as Yoshihiro Nishimura who provided special effects makeup for Machine Girl as well as directing films such as Tokyo Gore Police and Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl and I must say I ve been gradually growing a little tired of them The last couple I watched Helldriver and Yakuza Weapon had their moments but on the whole didn t work as effectively as Machine Girl and Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl had when I was introduced to the sub genre Nevertheless when I was offered the chance to review Iguchi s latest blood drenched opus Dead Sushi I had to say yes Dead Sushi if you haven t already guessed is about killer sushi Keiko Rina Takeda is a wannabe sushi chef who is told she will never make it by her harsh but talented sushi master father Keiko can t face him anymore so runs away from home finding work as a waitress at an inn run by a dodgy couple that show little respect for their staff or the sushi they claim to specialise in serving When the management of a large corporation come to stay a series of ridiculous incidents occur which result in the sushi created in the inn coming alive and seeking vengeance on the disrespectful residents and staff Because the art of making sushi is similar to the art of martial combat of course Keiko is the only one that can stop the wave of rice packed terror coming their way If you ve seen any of the other films I mentioned earlier you ll know what to expect Dead Sushi is cheaply shot hammily ropily performed and filled with base humour and cheap gags The special effects are pretty laughable and any opportunity to squeeze in some gore violence or titillation is exploited whenever possible But this is all part of the fun If this doesn t appeal to you don t even consider picking up the box as you won t like what you see So I ve probably not sold it very well so far How films like this succeed is by not giving a crap about what happens and what they throw in

    of Video Hell Haiku Review Interviews Short Films Weekend of Trash Home Reviews Film Reviews Tom Viv Becky Youe January 8 2016 Film Reviews Reviews Director Brian Gilbert Screenplay Michael Hastings Adrian Hodges Based on a Play by Michael Hastings Starring Willem Dafoe Miranda Richardson Rosemary Harris Country UK USA Running Time 115 minutes Year 1994 BBFC Certificate 15 Tom and Viv recently released on Blu Ray is a melancholy biopic focussed on the troubled marriage of literary great T S Eliot Tom and the eventual incarceration of his wife Vivienne Haigh Wood Eliot Viv The beginning of the film is dominated by a nostalgic voiceover from Viv s brother Morris That the marriage of Tom Willem Dafoe and Viv Miranda Richardson comes to an unhappy end is established quickly and it is heavily implied that Viv is to blame albeit unintentionally as a result of her women s troubles a shameful family secret according to Morris What exactly is perceived to be shameful about women s troubles is revealed once Tom and Viv are married Viv gets headaches and stomach aches she takes medication for she has drastic mood swings and loses her temper over the slightest provocation much to the embarrassment of Tom and her family A doctor explains to Tom that she has no control over her menstrual cycle she gets the curse two or three times a week she sullenly admits to her mother As the film continues the affectionate scenes between Tom and Viv few as they were lessen and disappear entirely replaced by those of jealousy humiliation loneliness and indeed shame Viv s behaviour becomes more unpredictable there is a memorable scene where angry that she is locked out of her husband s office justifiably so in this case she pours a large saucepan of molten chocolate through the letterbox More seriously Viv later causes Tom s car to run off the road by grabbing the steering wheel from him because she was irritated by the conversation between Tom and Morris and to top it all threatens a couple of women on the street with a knife one of which is supposedly Virginia Woolf So it transpires that according to an expert Viv not only suffers frequent and irregular women s troubles but is also almost absurdly morally insane From there the conclusion is clear Tom at this point legally separated from Viv and Viv s family conspire with her doctors to have her locked away in a mental institution There is a brief moment when the gathering of family and doctors seem to waver a little in their conviction but this really does last only a moment as Viv in a truly shocking scene lunges at them with her knife in a dramatisation of her fictional murder of Woolf Shortly afterwards she is dragged away by doctors from a public tearoom in disgrace The final scenes of the film are bittersweet Morris visits Viv in her confinement She hasn t seen Tom in
