WTF?!!! Big Man Japan

24.05.10    The Lanes, In conjunction with the Bath Japanese Festival

An eccentric man aged about 40 lives alone in a decrepit house in Tokyo. He periodically transforms into a giant, about 30 meters tall, and defends Japan by battling similarly sized monsters that turn up and destroy buildings. The giant and the monsters are computer-generated. Written by Ed

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

This is probably THE weirdest film we’ve ever show at Magic Lantern.  I had a sensation like when watching Dusk till Dawn when it lulls you into a false sense of security with dramatic/poetic characters and story line for the first half of the movie then POW!!  it suddenly goes immensely crazy! The Bath Japanese Festival invited us to play a Japanese film after some shorts which they brought.  It made for a really enjoyable screening for the last night of the festival. Watch the crazy final fight scene!
