My Thoughts:

So I’ve been meaning to watch this film for a while and I wish I hadn’t waited a long time to see this film. The film’s play on images and music is quirky and intriguing. My favorite aspect of the film was the way the story was told. The film is sectioned by different characters. Since the film is narrated through first perspective, the audience can intimately connect to each character, although, many may feel uncomfortable in the thoughts of each of the characters. Initially, I thought the film’s plot encompasses the reveal of who was responsible for Moriguchi’s daughter’s death, but the film immediately exposes the murders and instead I began to anticipate each character’s take on their actions.

3 words to describe this film: disturbing, introspective, worth-your-goddamn-time.
