Dir. Sion Sono. 2013, 129 mins. Digital projection. With Jun Kunimura, Fumi Nikaidô, Shin'ichi Tsutsumi. A wickedly grotesque, genre-bending ode to yakuza films from Japanese auteur Sion Sono, Why Don’t You Play In Hell? features a filmmaking clan of enfant terribles who insert themselves into a blood-soaked gang war with their cameras to fulfill their ultimate goal of making “the greatest movie ever made.”
