Ueda’s Special Actors Does Not Disappoint – Live Screening 8/20 [Fantasia Film Festival 2020]

Shin’ichirô Ueda’s (One Cut of the Dead) Special Actors is another wonderfully fun film from the much celebrated director. When your lifelong dream is to become an actor but you suffer from a special medical condition wherein you faint and collapse whenever nervous, what is there to do? Our protagonist Kazuto faces this very problem.

As suspected, I really really enjoyed this movie and feel like I can’t say much about it because I don’t want to destroy or even partially diminish your experience. This isn’t a horror film, but I wanted to cover it anyway because I am such a mega fan of One Cut of The Dead and I know many of you are as well. Ueda’s films just ooze with heart. It’s clear he loves the process and his films entirely exude that passion. It’s nearly impossible to watch this movie and not walk away feeling good. Once again working with a wonderful ensemble cast, the comedy is lighthearted with lots of surprises in store. That’s all I will say about it, please just trust that it’s so wonderful and so fun, and go grab a ticket for the live screening.

Special Actors is available to screen live for Canadian audiences on August 20th as part of the Fantasia Film Festival, get your ticket here
