Unpleasant ISOLA-tion
1 May 2004 | by Pro JurySee all my reviews

It is the final lost episode of NIGHT GALLERY and Rod Serling made it in Japan -- OK, not really.

Made in Japan, ISOLA has two attractive actresses and some (unnecessary) teen nudity, but sadly nothing can bring this movie exploring death to life.

Dark... in more ways than one. Most of ISOLA is shot at night using the hand-held shaky camera technic. In other words, it is difficult to see what is happening! Even the daytime shots are grey and murky.

ISOLA is slow and boring (just as I found THE 6TH SENSE and DONNIE DARKO to be). The subtitles are just OK... "There is know way to find her..." etc.

Interestingly, ISOLA has a scene where an elderly Japanese man shares shame for surrendering and not being killed with his men during WWII. The exact same thing occurs in 1998's WANDAFURU RAIFU (AFTERLIFE) also made in Japan http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0165078/ . It seems modern Japanese movie makers still feel angst about being defeated nearly 60 years ago.
