Well....this is my film, I must give it 5 stars. Hey..I'm sure Obama voted for himself. To comprehend this film takes patience and taste that runs more towards the lyrical and less towards the literal....or maybe I'm full of it. It's not supposed to be a viral video....(see "Man Getting Hit in Groin With Football" for that). Hey...they understood it (and liked it!!!!!!) when it played at Cannes Directors' Fortnight. No sour grapes here.

「ジョンウェインが馬嫌いだったら」という邦題と原題のジョンウェインは馬嫌いだった、とでは受け取るイメージが異なるのでタイトリングミスとも思えるが、どちらにせよ私には意味不明の作品だったので星ひとつ。
