Kimyô na sâkasu (Strange Circus)

Written by Shion Sono

Directed by Shion Sono

Japan, 2005

Twists and turns have been a point of contention for many a cinephile for some time now. There are countless blog posts about how much of a hack M. Night Shyamalan is simply because of his usage of twists in his films. The truth of the matter is that there’s no problem whatsoever with a twist within the narrative of a film as long as it is handled well. In Kimyô na sâkasu there isn’t just a twist, there are a series of twists that culminate in one mamma jamma of a twist ending. Again, judgment of a twist comes down to how it is executed and how it affects the story. Kimyô na sâkasu is a film where every one of its twists is merited and makes for a far more interesting viewing experience. »
