really good, but too cold to be great
28 July 2001 | by sarefoSee all my reviews

this movie is as violent as it will get. if you really want to get rid of somebody, show it to them. except if they like watching people eating other people's brain out after having them tortured to death. but, IF you can stand it, its a great movie. it was first shown on a film festival with a good reputation, and like everybody walked out. afterwards, the director of the festival apologized in public and said that they had not seen the film before.

among other things, kichiku shows some aspects of japan that maybe you did not realize before.
