Relentlessely grim exercise in purest nihilism.
23 September 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"The Violent Man Who Attacked 13 People" aka "Serial Rapist" has to be one of the most nihilistic violent pink movies I have ever seen.Its tone is utterly bleak and hopeless and the scenes of murder,rape and sexual violence are uncompromising.The film chronicles few days of life of cycling serial rapist and murderer.The howling saxophone of Kaoru Abe replaced the voice of the young killer-rapist bringing an inventive contrast to the dumbness of the young man.The loneliness of his lost character is simply overwhelming.The film is cold,bitter and full of despair.Wakamatsu was one of the most radical Japanese film-makers of 60's and 70's and "Serial Rapist" is a clear proof of his misanthropic attitude.10 out of 10.
