The latest from Japan’s notoriously prolific, subversive and cultishly adored Sion Sono is grandiose in scale yet as intimate in detail as his followers have come to expect.

Red Post on Escher Street is a film about filmmaking — about writing, directing, casting and, perhaps most crucially, about the extras. Sono’s new romp bursts at the seams as it follows a mass audition that quickly spirals out of control. Sparkling with the director’s trademark flare, slick cinematography, witty dialogue and a dazzling soundtrack, it boasts a bubbling cast of newcomers and veterans in its countless speaking roles.
