Drafthouse Films is immensely proud to present WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL? (地獄でなぜ悪い, Jigoku de Naze Warui, 2013), the unbelievable new genre-defying epic from Japan’s legendary Sion Sono, which hits U.S. theaters November 7th.
Master filmmaker Sono (LOVE EXPOSURE, COLD FISH) describes his frenzied, gleeful new masterpiece as “an action film about the love of 35mm.” Based on a screenplay he wrote nearly fifteen years ago, WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL? is among Sono’s very best work, as his trademark excess and outrageousness is infused with an affection for the previous century of Japanese cinema. This is Sion Sono with his talent and unique vision completely unleashed.
