Third Window Films of the U.K. has released a region B Blu-ray of “Ai no Mukidashi (Love Exposure),” Sion Sono’s 2008 four-hour black-comic epic about a pure-hearted Catholic (Takahiro Nishijima) who becomes an up-skirt photographer to please his sin-seeking priest/father, while trying save the love of his life (Hikari Mitsushima) from a bizarre cult. Long but compulsively watchable. Extras include an hour of deleted and extended scenes, as well as an interview with Sono and an hourlong “making of” video.
