Kamikaze Girls Trailer, Website and Review.

I meant to post something about this a good while ago when I first spotted the teaser online, but I never quite got around to it. Just stumbled across a full review and the full trailer, so I suppose it’s time …

Were you one of those people who figured the talk show host in Lost in Translation had to be some sort of bizarre in joke? Nothing that weird could actually be on mainstream television, right? Wrong. That guy’s actually the top rated talk show host in Japan and he doesn’t even begin to scratch the surfact of just how bizarre Japanese pop culture can be. They’ve got some truly strange sub-cultures over there … case in point: Kamikaze Girls. A luridly colored, adapted from a popular comic story about an unlikely friendship between a country girl fixated on 18th century France – hence the frilly dresses and parasols – and a member of an all female biker gang. I don’t expect the story line to be remarkably deep but this is the sort of thing destined to become an instant cult classic if it ever gets seen outside of Japan simply because it just looks so strange that people such as myself will be strangely compelled to watch it over and over again.

Check out an in depth review here, the teaser trailer here, the full trailer here, and the website here. If you can figure out why the poster features cabbages falling from the sky, let me know. I’m kind of curious.
