"Funky Forrest"

B recommended that I watch this Japanese movie that is a collection of strange short segments. He warned me that it was odd.

When I watch foreign films I'm used to them feeling foreign, but this didn't really feel that way. I think it is because this movie was not intended to make sense. When a film maker is telling a traditional story it is noticeable when communication fails. Because this movie was not intended to make sense it was no more absurd than English movies that do the same thing. It is really quite absurd, random, and nonsensical.

But did you like it?
Well, I liked it enough to keep watching it.

But I started feeling uncomfortable about some of the skits, starting with "Wanna go for a drink?" The skits that involved masturbating aliens and inserting things into assholes were very off-putting for me. Although the aliens were quite imaginative. (Those were Shunichiro Miki's segments.)

The Mole Brothers were irritating. The Guitar Brother segments were just "blah". I didn't like the animated segments at all.

On the other hand I liked Notti & Takefumi, especially Notti's Dream. I also liked the Babbling Hot Springs Vixens, and the Home Room!!!!!!!!! segments were amusing. Reminded me a bit of Four Rooms Which I did like.
