Takashi Miike’s second manga adaptation this year (alongside Blade of the Immortal) is a wild, colourful, chaotic explosion of action, fantasy and drama that gets really, unapologetically weird by its final act. Josuke (JoJo of the title) is a cool high school kid with amazing hair and the ability to summon his ‘Stand’ Shining Diamond, an ethereal entity that possesses unique powers. When another ‘Stand’ user begins to kill people in the town, JoJo, along with his nephew Jotaro and shy new kid Koichi, must track down the attacker and do battle. But this adversary is only the first of many in a truly bizarre adventure.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable - Chapter 1 is screening as part of Manga Movie Marathon and a pass for the event is available for £27/£22 or for FREE with a LIFF 2017 Pass or see 6 films for the price of 5 (available by phone or in person only) - details here.
