Chadwin’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Do you remember that pact we made? We promised to never leave each other.”
I really wanted to like this (and I expected to) but I just...didn’t.
I was really into the first 40 minutes or so, but then it just kept losing me over and over until by the end it was just kind of exhausting to finish. The film is visually entrancing, and for the most part I liked the camera work, but it might have been too much style over substance for me.
Maybe I just wasn’t built to be thrown into a drug-induced frenzy of neon lights and blood stained bathrooms in the midst of a bustling Tokyo...
Definitely liked Irreversible more, but I’m still glad I watched this for the few scenes that I did really like.
