Strange Circus

Intrigued by his boss’s new book on incest and murder, Yuji, assistant to the novelist Taeko, decides to research further. But when he starts digging into her past, he realizes he’s bitten off more than he can chew. Sion Sono combines some of the most extreme characters ever put on film, traditional grand guiniol elements and a haunting soundtrack (composed by Sono himself) to weave a stomach-churning tale about the darkest recesses of the human soul.
