Here's how it could have worked out. To back up my latest article for Mostly Film in which I review For Love's Sake, I could have picked up on a detail that quite a few other reviews have skipped over: that the songs in Takashi Miike's musical are all old ones, Japanese pop hits from the sixties and seventies that have been shoehorned into the narrative. And I could have taken the time to track down each individual song as performed in the film, and matched it against a video of the original. So, for example, we could see how the song introducing lead baddie Ken is actually the theme tune to a 1960s cartoon called Wolf Boy Ken. And so on.
But I'm lazy, so here's how it's actually going to work out. I'm going to pick a chronological selection of trailers and clips from Takashi Miike's epic career, and you're going to watch them. Deal? Deal. (I've also included links to previous reviews of his work from this site.)
