It's A Marathon Of Mayhem In Norboru Iguchi's New Thriller, LIVE
Director Noboru Iguchi is back, and he’s got friends. Cute friends. On rollerblades. With arrow gauntlets and chainsaw-arms!… Actually, the latter isn’t so cute, but still entertaining for moviegoers who enjoy a good suspense thriller, and Iguchi’s latest, Live, provides exactly that.
On the morning of a certain Tuesday, a mysterious “death race” is suddenly announced on television. Viewers are enthralled by the excitement of the competition, with participants getting knocked out of the race one after another in unpredictable ways. Meanwhile, survivors refer to a certain guide book for tips on how to succeed.
Viewers remain oblivious to the real reason people are participating in such a deadly event—each has fallen into a cruel trap while trying to protect the ones they love.
