An intriguing thriller
10 December 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a series of five unsolved murders in Tokyo back in 1995. All of a sudden, a man claims to be the murderer in a shocking memoir.

It is disturbing to see a murderer publishing an autobiographical book on his murders. This alone makes this story very intriguing. However, things turn out differently as expected, because nothing is as it seems. The twists are unexpected and surprising. The story offers a lot of mystery and thrill throughout. I enjoyed watching it.
