WHY HASN’T ANYONE BOUGHT THE US RIGHTS TO THIS? IF DISCOTEK CAN MAKE MONEY OFF OF MADBULL 34, IT CAN MAKE MONEY OFF OF THIS!
Seriously, if you can, check out Minoru Kawasaki’s other films. The Calamari Wrestler is an amazingly fun movie about a squid who is also a pro wrestler. That sentence should be enough reason to seek it out. Executive Koala is a fever dream.

I rarely reblog stuff, but this hit the nail on the head. I’ve read a good deal of Palahniuk, despite most of his recent stuff leaving me underwhelmed. The one thing I can say about his work is that he never makes his characters good people; sure, they might recognize what’s wrong with them and might work to change it, but they’re consistently flawed and usually deplorable.
