Netflix Movie Spelunker: Princess


Mr. Black
The first installment in this column I'll give to a Danish animated film called "Princess." Now before you before you fill the comments section with all sorts of "Mr. Black is a homo"esque references you should probably check this one out first.

This thing is dark. About as dark as any animated film I've ever seen.

The Rundown:

So a guy named August comes home from his seminary work of some sort to find his sister being banged by three fat dudes on a porno set. All while being extremely pregnant. I say extremely because you see her ready-to-burst belly jiggling with every dick pump.

Fast forward a few years he finds his sister dead and his now five year old niece living in a brothel with what remained of his sisters friends/colleagues. I won't get into any of the fucked up shit his niece had to go through--it's not shown, but clearly implied. After finding his sister's dick-columned burial shrine in the cemetery he knows he needs to clear this shit up once and for all.

I won't go any further, but let's just say it involves a lot of violence with guns and crowbars.

Why you should watch it:

It tackles subject matter that few films do, and do as well. It doesn't pull any punches with subject matter and the interesting inner-cut real video shot by August before his sister's death really adds to the narrative. It's an interesting blend of media, not some typical Japanese Anime full of big eyes and blue hair.

That said, go check it out. It's one of those movies that will haunt your brain well after it's over.
