    Tomie: Another Face

    the only word that comes to mind: “anemic”. a three parter without a single part fleshed fully out. wildly ambitious for its timeframe (a one-hour television broadcast!!!), completely rounded on the edges. i liked the big mocking tomie ghost ash cloud face in the last part. i liked the creepy payoff with the voyeuristic first-person photo pov segment of the second one. i liked that the first one… ended. a snoozer

    went in with no expectations and was amazed by its shocking style, soupy neo-noir atmosphere, bummer post-bubble feminist subtext, extremely cool [WOMEN MOMENT] and da jokerisms of miho kanno in her best richard d. james album cover teas. here for a good time and not a long one, ataru oikawa’s debut may be let down by some weird pacing and budgetary thriftiness at horror moments. not exactly worthy of full 1990s j-horror boom canonization but very worth your time
