What's really going on?
6 July 2018 | by ninecursesSee all my reviews

A nice puzzle of a film, featuring a narration device I don't believe I've ever seen before: Voice-over throughout, with no dialogue! But what is this story that our main character is telling us, and why doesn't it match what's on the screen? We've all experienced the unreliable narrator, but this movie takes it to the extreme. And I mean that in the good way, because it leaves us with a lot to think about.

Kuro has left me guessing and thinking for days. It is quite effective in this way, though at about 80 minutes the story-telling device, I felt, ran a little long. Still, overall, an effective puzzle. Strange, haunting, mysterious.
