goth LOLITA movie this FRIDAY Jul. 25th, 2007 @ 11:50 am
Kamikaze Girls

(Shimotsuma monogatari)

Japan 2004. Director: Tetsuya Nakashima

Cast: Kyoko Fukada, Anna Tsuchiya, Hiroyuki Miyasako, Sadao Abe, Eiko Koike

Director Tetsuya Nakashima's weird and wonderful Kamikaze Girls is based on a best-selling novel by Novala Takemoto, a fashion designer and cult writer with a devoted following amongst young Japanese women in the “Lolita” fashion scene. Opening with a shôjo animated sequence, the film chronicles the odd friendship between prissy Momoko (J-pop star Kyoko Fukada), a bored country girl obsessed with the frilly-dress lifestyle of 18th-century France, and sneering, snarling Ichiko (J-pop star Anna Tsuchiya), a tough-talking biker chick. “Gorgeous and energetic ... As exciting for its beautifully specific and honest portrayal of teenage girls and their friendships as it is for its dazzling visual and narrative style, Kamikaze Girls is a glorious blend of kitsch, grit, humour and uplift that borrows freely from various Japanese subcultures and films such as The Outsiders and Kill Bill ... [It] captures the appeal of the fashion subcultures of aesthetes and misfits, re-creating a rarefied atmosphere in which identity creation is a thoughtful, idealistic art” (Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times). “Wildly ironic fun ... stylistically Kamikaze outdoes Tarantino at his own flamboyant game ... It is less a comedy than a full-on live-action manga” (Andrew Sun, Hollywood Reporter). Colour, 35mm, in Japanese with English subtitles. 100 mins.

Gothique, is she happening this year?
» Fashion shows?
Hey there!
I missed the last show, been sick off and on for months and finally figured out what I needed to do. Thats handled and I'm almost recovered now. Wondering when the next show is going to be, where it will be held and all that fun stuff.

Also A friend of mine is putting together a small show and having trouble because designers are dropping out last minute... if you have stuff ready to go or a little time to toss together a few pieces you may want to get in there! http://www.livejournal.com/users/intrepid_reason/215349.html
