film: Helter Skelter

Famous supermodel and idol Lilico holds a dark secret that soon is to come out, her seemingly beautiful body was created entirely through plastic surgery. Mika Ninagawa beauty horror based on popular manga meant to be critical towards idol industry but in many ways turned out exactly opposite. Ninagawa being a fashion photographer is part of the industry herself and perhaps in her case it does not help to be critical.

The film is two hours of madly colorful production cloying obvious commentary presented through regrettably extended scenes.The director however pushes our tolerance for that glorious gaudiness too far. It feels like flipping through the glossy fashion magazine with too little content, which is rather hard to endure.
