YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Sono Sion (Love Exposure) unleashes a blood-soaked tribute to cinema, passion, yakuza and 35mm film with Why Don't You Play in Hell. One of the cult director's most purely "fun" films of his career, this dark comedy is a hilariously over-the-top saga about a yakuza boss determined to give his daughter an acting career, a rival yakuza boss out for revenge, a group of filmmakers in pursuit of the film dream and the innocent man caught in the middle. Winner of the audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival, Why Don't You Play in Hell is a wild ride from a provocative filmmaker who knows how to shock and delight his audience at the same time.

Ten years ago, the wife of Muto (Kunimura Jun) goes on a gangland massacre that lands on the newspaper headlines, effectively ending her young daughter's acting career. To celebrate his wife's impending release from prison, Muto is determined to revive his daughter Michiko's (Nikaido Fumi) acting career by giving her a starring role in a film. However, Michiko has fled the production to hunt down her ex-boyfriend and has dragged innocent bystander Koji (Hoshino Gen) along with her. Meanwhile, Ikegami (Tsutsumi Shinichi), Muto's rival and the sole survivor of the massacre ten years ago, is back and ready to take his revenge. At the same time, a group of passionate filmmakers who filmed the injured Ikegami ten years ago are about to have a chance to make their dream come true – by filming the real massacre about to take place between Muto and Ikegami.
