Films to Craft to: Kamikaze Girls

I spent pretty much all day yesterday embroidering. I haven't been too well and had to find something to while away the hours since i've been confined to bed rest.
I don't know about you but I always like to watch a film when i'm crafting- if its something quite complex i'll opt for listening to music instead. Kamikaze Girls is one of my top ten films to craft to (i'll reveal the rest of the top ten in the fullness of time!) for a few reasons. One being that its easy to watch despite having subtitles. Ususally a subtitled film is a no-no if you're trying to multi-task at the same time. Two, is that the main chraracter, Momoko, is obsessed with embroidery and even the local all girl biker gang appreciate a good piece of embroidery when they see it.

If you haven't seen Kamikaze Girls or even heard of it i'm not going to promise you'll love it as much as me, it tends to get a lot of mixed reviews! But if you love Japanese pop culture, enjoy visually colourful films and want something easy to watch then i'd say give it a go.

The film has been adapted from a graphic novel series and has developed a bit of a cult following over the years. You can get a copy for around £7 on Amazon if you want to give it a go.
