For a while Ive been really keen on the idea of an anime club style group watch of the great movie KNOCK OFF (dir. hark tsui, 1998). Its probably better than DOUBLE TEAM, even though it doesnt have dennis rodman in it, but thats ok, lets watch double team eventually too.

One of my friends described jcvd in this as fighting off a teeth-grinding coke rictus. Apparently he was so coked up during shooting he actually doesnt remember anything, and you can tell. It has a badass action setpiece where jcvd slides around on his knees shooting dudes, and I like that it has a sparks theme song. Its basically live action anime and it’s also kind of gorgeous.

Were doing a double feature with the takashi miike film RAINY DOG, personally hand selected by my pal @Tulpa. I havent seen it but I trust their taste, and so should you!

Me and these ladies will c u there! Wednesday, 18 July, 21:00 est @ https://cytu.be/r/sbanimeclub!!

Oh shit an anime club JUST FOR ME

Rainy Dog is not Miike in the stereotyped mode of cartoonish ultra-violence, it’s melancholic Miike. This is a movie I want to show to justify why I care about Miike in the first place. Its aesthetic, its reserved, and its completely captivating. There’s hardly any dialogue for the entire running time. Saying this is enough to get Shrug to sign in. If people want more over the top Miike fare, they’ll have to wait for the next violence club where I’ll play something tasteless and hilarious like Happiness of the Katakuris. But for the first? Rainy Dog.

(Plus, if people want to get a feel for stereotypical Miike, we can always play the opening music video from Dead or Alive)

You liiiiied to meeeeee

Oh yeah, Rainy Dog is the perfect Miike movie if you had a shitty emotionally distant dad who didn’t care about you one way or the other.

this… is basically my content warning for the movie. Its the most minor content warning of any Miike movie that I can think of


#11

i’m down with this. violence and film and ladies.


#12

Phew I’d been thinking this was tonight for some reason. OK! I’ll be there for violence flix.

From the handful of Miike I’ve seen Gozu’s been my fav. Modern myth x yakuza surreality, could be good for another big mood add violence night.

@villain and I had a killer combo prepped last year we never got to showing. That should resurrect.

Aww, Rainy Dog. I love that movie. @Tulpa have you seen The Bird People in China? It’s another Miike with a similar atmosphere; I remember enjoying it immensely. https://youtu.be/gsquzbsFq14
