stretching and boring with some glimpses of genius
29 December 2001 | by (St. Gallen) – See all my reviews

Be prepared to embark on a thoroughly phlegmatic (!) roller-coaster ride (!!) that won't leave you indifferent (!!!).

Kakashi (which means scarecrow) is moving at a very slow pace, it appears even static at times (reminiscent of films like "The Sixth Sense"). It almost desperately tries to be UNSPECTACULAR, which helps to build a sinister atmosphere throughout the movie, unfortunately not quite strong enough to keep the viewer interested permanently. STORY as such is hardly existent, the CHARACTERS are flat and stay one-dimensional (but who said that the quality of MOTION pictures has to be measured against the two-dimensional axes of story and character?). Other than that it is cinematic poetry (the third dimension in my opinion) conceived by a madman, ABSURD but truly BEAUTIFUL. There are some nice shots of pure melancholy and then again some pretty scary stuff too. This mix of moments of sudden shock, terror, regret and human suffering makes it well worth a look. SOUNDTRACK was pretty cool too, has a haunting quality to it. I bought the Code3-DVD which is alright to watch, picture quality is O.K. although a bit blurred and unstable at times.

Finally, to sum it up: A horror movie that got the blues endlessly...

(***1/2 out of *****)
