Weird-ass gutter psychedelia. Has an ongoing subplot about a moped enthusiast trying to manifest a baby from an inanimate sex doll. Long on vibes, short on most everything else, but kinda fun if you can dial in on its druggy, transgressive wavelength.

Aww, gee thanks! Just got back from vacation in Japan. Should be ramping up my viewing/posting over the next few weeks.

I enjoyed this. It felt sleazy, microbudget and meandering in an authentic way, not like a product made to repackage the gutterpunk sensibilities of weirdo 80s fringe movies as something comfortable and consumable, like a lot of stuff has felt lately.
