    The more I wrote, the more I realized mere words were not enough. So I found another form of expression.

    God I love Paul Schrader so much. The dreamlike book sequences are so brilliantly constructed. The production design, score, performances, cinematography, all of it man. It all rocks so hard. I wasn’t expecting to feel so deeply for Mishima from just reading the synopsis. The glory of his tradition is so wonderfully conveyed. Good stuff, thanks Donny.

    “Can we show this?”

    Absolutely packed to the brim with tension, adrenaline, and horror. Jake Gyllenhal just out-right crushes it. The thumping score coupled with the dreary, grimy camera and quick cuts makes for an incredibly pointed tone. In this film, just like Leo’s footage, what happens offscreen is just as gruesome as what happens on. It has you constantly guessing his next move, trying to piece things together. The ending caught me off…
