Don’t be late to the theater because Tag begins in high gear. In the middle of a school outing, a gust of wind slices a bus in half, decapitating all the girls except for Mitsuko, who manages to escape and reach her school. There she finds her classmates once again. Was it all just a nightmare? One of our favorite directors is back with a feast of impossible deaths that casts serious doubts on supposed female frailty.
Poet and founder of the Tokyo Ga Ga Ga artistic project, he debuted with Bicycle Sighs in 1990. He’s one of the most radical directors on the contemporary scene for films like Suicide Club (02), Love Exposure (08) and Guilty of Romance (11).
