just imagining the gleeful director slipping in one more audacious wipe, dissolve or jump cut
9 March 2008 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

For a large part of this fairly short film I sat feeling indulgent but gradually loosing patience in the thing making any real sense, until in the end I gave up and just enjoyed whatever there was to enjoy. It appears that Suzuki was very much a director for hire and a B movie director to hire to make things worse, or better. Clearly he had to tow the line telling the pretty daft story of betrayal and revenge but increasingly one is aware of him having his own bit of fun. By the end one is smiling at the over the top reactions, wild chases and gorgeously mad lighting. Not to mention the lead bursting into song every now and again. Coming to this with low expectations and with little regard for the depth of the story there are many cinematic pleasures just imagining the gleeful director slipping in one more audacious wipe, dissolve or jump cut. It may be a good example for film students as how not to make a film but it can still be fun to watch, in the right mood.
