WIN! ‘Isn’t Anyone Alive?’ with Third Window Films

NB: Some of my earliest blogs no longer have their accompanying images but enjoy the copy!

Christmas is upon us, so what better way to celebrate with some Japanese black comedy?

The blog’s teamed up with Third Window Films for this month’s competition, offering one lucky reader the chance to win one of their latest DVDs, ‘Isn’t Anyone Alive?’ by Gakuryu (Sogo) Ishii.

When people talk about a bizarre urban myth at a University hospital people start dying inexplicably one after another…

With the air of this ‘energy void’ throughout, the world of this absurd black comedy, based upon the theatre play of the same name, starts to implode upon itself.

With ‘Crazy Thunder Road’ (1980), ‘Burst City’ (1982), ‘The Crazy Family’ (1984), ‘Angel Dust’ (1994), ‘Electric Dragon 80,000V’ (2001) and more, Gakuryu Ishii (previously known as Sogo Ishii) has been amusing us with his talent of totally overstepping genre boundaries with striking images and music. In his latest feature film he has adapted the Shiro Maeda play ‘Isn’t Anyone Alive’, an avant-garde story of 18 young students dying one after another.

Entering is super easy because it’s Christmas and we’re just nice like that. Simply like Third Window Films on Facebook and then leave a comment in this blog post to let us know! A winner will be selected on 1st January 2013, so get your entries in by New Year’s Eve.

(Your comment may not appear immediately after you post it as it may need pending. You only need to post once though and your entry will be received!)

You can also check out Third Window Films’ website to see some of their other brilliant films. My personal favourite is Confessions but there’s something for everyone, from slapstick to thriller.

Enter now and you could have another DVD to add to your collection for the new year!
