CJS Movie Night: GOZU

While our movie nights are usually the third Friday of the month we've had to change it slightly this time...please note the date.

Thursday, March 13, 2008: 7:00 PM

The Canada Japan Society is proud to present a screening of Takashi Miike’s 2003 yakuza mind bender “Gozu". Yakuza foot soldier Minami is uncomfortable about whacking his mentor Ozaki who’s insane behaviour has become a liability to his crew, but when Ozaki disappears Minami’s quest for his old gang brother goes straight down the rabbit hole into a surreal world of lactation, cow-headed gods, body snatching and gender shifting...

Midnight Eye describes it as "An utterly bizarre excursion into the realms of post logic...far out and at times riotously funny." It's Miike at his strangest.

For the post-party this time we'll be heading over to the JAVA pub night at ALIO (Dundas and Bay).

CJS Members $5
Non-Members $8
