Kuroneko

Kuroneko ★★★★

80

What a ghost story. Horrified by the violence brought on by men, and fascinated by the echoes of history and revenge. Often its dreamy, repetitive aesthetic takes on the nature of an endless loop, a trap set off time and time again, with man's evil confronted by the agency of women. Eventually it complicates its narrative, with heartbreaking results, but the first act is a perfect horror film in miniature. The images practically float across the screen.
