Solid and Conventional!!!!
15 January 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Takashi Miike's Taiyô no kizu/Sun Scarred (2006) is a more narratively conventional film than some of the directors previous films. Here the characters live in a recognisable and realistic world.

The film is very entertaining and engrossing. It is also quite creepy because our "hero" experiences the desensitisation to violence and its consequences by a younger generation.

There are some Takashi visual flourishes in Taiyô no kizu/Sun Scarred but they only add to the narrative drive of the story. The performances are all excellent across the board.

A solid, if slightly conventional, movie from Takashi Miike.
