R100:

R100 Trailer


Absurdist director Hitoshi Matsumoto is back with more crazy. 

Always an artistic master of the weird and wild, with R100 filmmaker Hitoshi Matsumoto (Symbol, MIFF 2010; DaiNipponjin, MIFF 2008) follows a middle-aged furniture salesman through a monotone world where he escapes routine by joining an S&M club. He signs an unbreakable contract to be beaten – anywhere, anytime – by beautiful dominatrices for a year.

In a surrealistic adjunct, the salesman's fetishism forms part of another movie directed by a 100-year-old man. A censorship committee deems this film unwatchable for anyone under the age of 100, hence the rating restriction of R100.


Words fail me.  I don't know how to describe this other than 'wacky'.  The Distance and R100 are my two token 'crazy' MIFF films this year and what The Distance had in stark landscapes and telepathic dwarves, R100 makes up for it with a faster pace and many a Japanese dominatrix in leather beating/spitting and generally abusing the hell out of him, which he of course loves at first but then things start to get personal.

I loved Matsumoto's previous effort, Big Man Japan, but I haven't seen the Symbol [which according to my friend is a bit better than R100] this is still a nutty ride and generally had me laughing constantly at the absurdity of what I was seeing.  The Saliva Queen is a particular highlight but really the whole thing was a ball.  As with Big Man Japan things get especially crazy towards the end [watch for the CEO of the 'Bondage Corporation'- she's just nuts]  Probably my favourite of the festival this year, but I'm always up for absurdist wackiness, and I suppose anything with a 'Gobble Queen' may be a-ok by me...

Is that an earthquake?

4.5/5

Dean: yes, you DO need to see THE APPLE... you can indulge your natural, natural, natural desire to meet an actual, actual, actual vampire!

BOYHOOD: Watch Mason Jr. survive a bratty sister, first love, and a succession of stepfathers as he grows from a boy to a man in this narrative experiment shot over 12 years with the same actors. Even though nothing out of the ordinary happens in BOYHOOD, it's strangely absorbing to watch the cast age in front of your eyes. I can't think of any other fiction film that so carefully imitates the intimacy of a good documentary. 4.5/5.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
