Next up was perhaps the most questionable slot in the festival. I'd heard so much about the short preceding this film that I couldn't not see it. I mean serious stuff like Karrie League not being able to finish watching it and Rodney proclaiming it the grossest thing he's seen in years and Lars calling it "pretty rough." Never mind that the movie following it is about a guy with a penis gun and starts off with a dog and a lion mating with a human woman.

Gary's Touch. It's gross but not unbearably so. Maybe that means I'm a sicko or just jaded to infinity. It's not violent or animal-cruel or eating-puke type gross, more like sexual, bodily-fluid gross. And it's really only one scene and it's also pretty damn funny so... I was a bit let down although I can see where the hubbubb comes from. To me it was worth watching.

Never Belongs To Me however, quickly became an exercise in trying to fall asleep while weird loud Japanese things happen in front of me. There were about 7 minutes of enjoyment (when the guy finally gets his penis gun and goes through training then gets revenge on the bad guys) but... instead of ending when it was supposed to, it went on. For another 45 minutes. I was kind of following it up to that point but from then on nothing made sense to me and I was basically waiting for it to end.

Admittedly, I am not a super huge fan of Japanese horror or Japanese wackiness. I think both are really arbitrary and random and work fine as an Alamo pre-show but aren't necessarily something I'd pay to see. So there's my bias right there, but still. ugh.
