    How do you write about a movie that is 7 hours and some chanTV. Well, the pacing is well plodded out. It also helps to know this is part of the slow cinema genre.

    Knife+Heart is sleek and stylish with plenty of homage to giallo films. Stylish kills and colored lighting. There is also plenty of humor which is truly funny and playful.

    My biggest complaint is at the end. The way this film reveals the plot is amazing, it shows you without using words. The part that I did not like…
