zed’s review published on Letterboxd:
these 3 scorching hours pull you in completely. peeking into the apex of Kafuku's life and career. vignettes doing the same for several other characters— as they become increasingly intricately tied to Kafuku's own. best seen going into it cold. prepare yourself for yet another achingly beautiful and quiet tale navigating loss. the cherry on top being how Hamaguchi captures endurance in a hellish reality; to keep on living.
