If you’re not already familiar with the works of Noboru Iguchi, then I suggest you do yourself a favor by blowing your dick off right now because he’s like the granddaddy of filming the beautiful derrière of girls from his country. I’m almost certain every Iguchi movie has at least one nice close-up butt shot of a girl, and his latest comedy gore , Live, delivers a great deal of that. Of course, it’s also packed with tons of silliness, like a girl doing cart wheels while arrows fly between her legs. That’s Iguchi for ya! I promise by the end of Live, also known as Raivu in Japan, you’ll want to give him a great big hug because it offers nothing but a good experience from story to boobs to gore and even to character development. Yeah! It’s got some of that too. Just make sure you don’t have a stiffy when you approach him for a hug.
Since there’s no official synopsis available yet, I’m pretty sure you would like to know what the heck the movie is about. Well, the best way to describe it would be not to reveal anything since Iguchi didn’t give us much in the teaser trailer, other than there’s a bunch of runners in it. But since I’m a really nice guy and I had the privilege to watch it during the 2014 Fantasia Film Festival, I’ll simply say that it’s The Amazing Race meets The Road Warrior. Each contestant in the movie has the choice to take part in the race or let a loved one die at the mercy of a mysterious man. Although, Iguchi is a really nice guy in person, he isn’t so kind to the racers. One by one someone gets killed off, but always in bizarre and humorous fashion.
The Verdict: 3/5 Skulls
If you want to see something opposite of Takeshi Miike with blood and boobs, I suggest you dig into Iguchi’s movie selection because he’s got a lot of that. Live is a really good start for anyone, but I wouldn’t rate it as awesome as Dead Sushi or Ass. Remember, I used the word “awesome,” which means Live is still excellent.
I highly suggest you check it out once it drops on Blu-ray or DVD.
