My only complaint is that the author, Thomas Weisser, is totally biased. To Weisser, no film can be flawed, as long as it's Japanese. But, as a film critic, that is a cinematically-fatal mistake. Many of the dozens of reviews in this book are totally wrong. I mean, do any of the films in the "Guinea Pig" series deserve any more that 1 star out of 5? And is "All Night Long 3: The Final Atrocity" really better than the first two films? Or is it worse? Much, much worse?
If you are one of the many people who are absolutely convinced that Japanese filmmakers can do no wrong, and that no Japanese film in the history of that nation has ever sucked, than this is the perfect book you! But, if you're are realistic about Japanese cinema, than I can only semi-recommend it.
