Superb Japanese thriller full of suspense and interesting plot twists.
2 June 2002 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Keiho' is a fascinating thriller dealing with memory, guilt and justice. A young actor is arrested for a brutal double murder. He confesses but pretty soon the possibility of him being mentally ill and therefore legally incompetent comes to the fore. A young female psychiatrist working on the case (called Kafka, interestingly enough!) becomes convinced that he is faking his apparent schizophrenia. All very good and 'Primal Fear' so far, but after that things get much more complicated, ambiguous and interesting. 'Keiho' is strongly acted, well written, and imaginatively directed, and will keep you guessing right until its' final scenes. Supposedly based on a true case, unresolved at the time of the movies original release, this is a real gem that beats 90% of Hollywood's lame and predictable thrillers at their own game. Try and see this one!
