pure genius
2 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

this black/white movie was 5 years in the making and described by the director Yoshihiko Matsui as " would be a scandal if made into a motion picture." Its focus are the daily lifes of social outcasts in kyoto, misfits and freaks, we have a serial killer, crippled soldiers, an incestuous couple, dwarves and homeless people, all of them struggling to get by. NR is the most uncompromising look at alienation, a raw and violent depiction of society and the gaps it creates. If you ever get the chance to see it, please do so, it´s one of those forgotten masterpieces
