殺し屋１(Ichi the Killer) dir. Takashi Miike
“There’s no love in your violence.”
”Do you know what “nemesis” means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an ‘orrible cunt… me.”
what the fuck am I looking at?
this was from some weird film, can’t remember the name, but it is supposed to be god disemboweling himself..
It’s called Begotten.
I (accidentally) found out about it last night when I was browsing TVtropes and came across the Surreal Horror page; it’s meant to be a re-imagining of Genesis, and apparently it was inspired by a near-death experience the director had after being involved in a car crash.
If that’s not enough to give you an idea of how fucked up it is, have a read of the synopsis provided by imdb:
“God disembowels himself with a straight razor. The spirit-like Mother Earth emerges, venturing into a bleak, barren landscape. Twitching and cowering, the Son Of Earth is set upon by faceless cannibals.”
“Begotten features no dialogue, but uses harsh and uncompromising images of human pain and suffering to tell its tale. It also has little music, and is instead accompanied by the sounds of crickets, and occasionally other sound effects such as grunting and thrashing. It was shot on black and white reversal film, and then every frame was rephotographed for the high-contrast look that it presents. The look is described in the trailer as “a Rorschach test for the eye”. Merhige said that for each minute of original film, it took up to 10 hours to rephotograph it for the look desired.”
Sounds pretty interesting. Gonna have to find somewhere online to watch it later.
all my hard work of google searching shall pay off, especially since it’s almost 4 am
who even has the time to work in their sketchbook????
