A Nipponese boy from a broken home tries to overcome all the violence and hardship in his life in "Himizu," the latest pic from prolific scribe-helmer Sion Sono ("Cold Fish," "Suicide Club").
It's the second year that controversial Japanese helmer Sion Sono has had a film debut at Venice. But this year's "Himizu," screening in competition today, has a rather different tone than last…
Literature, sexual profligacy and pink paint make for strange bedfellows in the dark, wantonly risque Japanese crimer "Guilty of Romance."
Religion, family and sexual mores are satirically skewered in overlong "Love Exposure."
