Almost unwatchable
27 June 2012 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not usually one to be bothered by 'shaky cam' in say Blair Witch Project or Troll Hunter, but here the camera is constantly moving and shaking for the entire 90 minutes, rendering the film almost unwatchable, I had a headache at the end.

Even ignoring this, the movie is no great shakes, it's well acted, it's suitably unpleasant and there are moments of grim humour I laughed at; but the narrative is wafer thin and a lot of the movie really is nothing Takashi Miike hasn't done better half a dozen times before.

Anyway all I really wanted to say, if you dislike 'shaky cam' avoid this movie like the plague, it will make your head hurt.
