Crazy women are the most dangerous species on earth. They’ll mess up your head, destroy your life, ruin your children. So, if one of them is targeting you, run away as fast and as far as you can, especially if you’re a Catholic priest.
But then, what’s exactly drive these women out of their heads? You’ve got to believe, behind every psycho woman there is a self-righteous, over religious, sex crazed lunatic man. Combine these two elements, and the result is an almost four-hours long (yep, 237 minutes to be exact) one of the most brain damaged, panty obsessed, twistedly religious black-comedy-slash-social-parody in the history of world cinema. Viewers beware: it won’t be a complete Sion Sono movie without severed genitals and several bloodbaths!
My Rating: 8/10
