are you angst-ridden?
2 July 2003 | by (NZ) – See all my reviews

mmmm, interesting. saw this & battale royale at a festival, and of the two, this was the more disturbing by far. it doesn't really matter that you don't actually see a student's groinal area getting tenderised with a baseball bat, or another student having a drink can wedged into his mouth before the gang leader stomps on his head - the screaming and the scattered teeth are enough. battale royale's camp qualities & tomato sauce (ketchup for US readers) undercut any identification with real, actual, terrorising highschool-type terror... i gather from this site that battale royale has not been released in the states. where are your priorities, o america fair?

anyway, this is supposedly a rant on blue spring. this girl is very, very glad she's not a student at a japanese highschool, it all seems awfully bleak and graffiti-covered. but fabulous to watch (and the failed baseball player is delicious, for those of you who like school uniforms.) it's occasionally emotive and over-played, but blue spring makes its points about adolescent (and adult) despair with economy and nice lighting. & i particularly liked the way the thrash japanese rock score sometimes plays in the characters' heads & drowns out any attempt at communication...
