堀川中立売

Nippon Visions   ½ 

With everybody’s life being dominated by capitalistic tyranny, Kyoto seems to be driven into oblivion by a mysterious media mogul. Only full-blood-slacker Shinsuke seems to miss everything. Go SHIBATA’s homage to his hometown confronts the audience not only with great underground music, but first and foremost with an anarchic vision of filmic experiments, far from any convention, totally tasteless and hilariously funny!
