    Interesting study on the psyche of a serial killer and exploration of the darker side of Japanese society.
    Great character development, two really vicious killings and rich back-story but as a whole the movie felt a bit bloated and it didn't resonate as well as I expected.

    An excellent movie, made with great art, although the constant mistreatment of women is a bit annoying. 1 year ago
