    Although Murukami has some brilliant shit under his belt this falls just a bit short. The narrative is rather loosely roped together and doesn’t cinch tight in the moments it attempts to. Mistress Saki is a bright spot and earns more care from the viewer than our timid protagonist. Saki’s thoughts on a wealthy Japan lacking in pride as the maker of the men that crawl around for her is thought provoking but wanes as…

    Great colour and set design, certainly some fashion film moments in here too. Most of it’s horrific moments came off as goofy despite that larvae scene being pretty gross.

    What...


    Still head wrapping this film but. Can’t not come away with reading such seedy transphobic notions. To have the crux of a kidnapee’s trauma revolve around forced feminization indicates that stripping a cisman of his gender is equivalent to the suffering of Norma. Perhaps that’s a false equivalency but... idk. Can’t not say I’m tired of male revenge flicks. Loose narrative roped together by traumatizing trigger after trigger. This feeling fully strips the cinematic qualities of the film which make it all just a sour sour sour taste in the mouth. It lacks all and any kind of tact to deal with trans/non-binary narratives.
