Why Don't You Play in Hell

This looks like one of the craziest movies ever. Sion Sono is a Japanese filmmaker who has decided to give the familiar yakuza crime thrillers a new spin. Why Don't You Play inn Hell looks like a wild, meta, action bonanza following a young, inexperienced film crew who call themselves The Fuck Bombers who are hired to film two rival gangs battle to the death. It's the final plan of don Muto, who wants to take down his enemy, film it all, and give his daughter the starring role, all before his wife is released from prison. Wacky, funny, bloody, insane and other similar adjectives don't begin to describe this flick. Just see for yourself.

Here's the first trailer for Sion Sono's Why Don't You Play in Hell, originally from Apple:

Why Don't You Play in Hell is written and directed by Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono. There’s a war going on, but that won’t stop the inexperienced but eager wannabe film crew The Fuck Bombers from following their dreams of making the ultimate action epic. Ten years ago, yakuza mid-boss Ikegami led an assault against rival don Muto. Now, on the eve of his revenge, all Muto wants to do is complete his masterpiece, a feature film with his daughter in the starring role, before his wife is released from prison. And The Fuck Bombers are standing by with the chance of a lifetime: to film a real, live yakuza battle to the death, all on 35mm! Drafthouse Films releases the film in limited theaters early next month on November 7th. Well?

Holy shit, I started laughing as soon as the review quote "Mankind's greatest achievement" came up. I really hope this will deliver what this trailer promises.
