Against all odds or perhaps as to be expected, a criminal and a prostitute have sex, fall in love and run off together. A bit less against all odds and certainly more likely to be expected, the local king pin doesn’t appreciate this since we can be fairly certain here that he considers the prostitute his property. Or perhaps his wife. Doesn’t really matter. From then on, people start running…
Merely a selection of utterly random impressions from a movie called ‘Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between A Criminal And A Whore’: Burning cross. Punk cinema. Senile. Demented. Music video. Sex. Dead body in the gutter. Hawaiian steel guitar version of Johann Pachelbel‘s ‘Canon’. “Oh, hee, ah-ah!”. Rock ‘n’ Roll. Woman with cum on her mouth. Driving cars. Shooting. Black angel wings. Horse head. Bloodshed. Hitting people in the face. Raunchy and naughty. Tadanobu Asano holding a handheld camera filming himself. Here you can see a parked bus. Takashi Kitano and Takashi Miike are not the same person. Dancing on graves. Cinematographer Christopher Doyle shot this picture, I wonder if Wong Kar-wai approved of this. Khavn playing the piano. Choking on an animal fetus straight from the egg. Random killing. Provocative. Ridiculous. A lovestory between a criminal and a whore has got to end badly. Everybody is insane. Singing. Dancing. Hectic. Henchmen. Wasted. Pissed. Plastered. Shake that selfie-cam and shake it hard. No, harder. Tearing out the pages of a phone book placed over the face of the woman you’re fucking. Guerrilla film making. Style over substance. Some wacky shit going on right there. Tattoos. Body painting and action painting mixed together, Jackson Pollock can be proud. Everything’s all over the place. A pig and a rabbit. Naked breasts. Dildos. Running through narrow alleyways. People die. People getting random beatings. Revenge. Tadanobu Asano playing an out-of-tune string instrument. Slow motion shots. City horizon upside-down. Aimless. Umbrella. Lack of understandable dialogue. Off the beaten path. Tadanobu Asano pulling out the hairs in his nose with his fingers. Manila. Underground. Fred Williamson is not in this movie. Allegedly filmed in only five days, they probably blew half the budget on amphetamines. What just happened there? No more room left on the soundtrack for other songs. Tadanobu Asano is cool. This film ends at some point.
