Kiyoshi Kurosawa Capsule Reviews

Cure (1997) — May 10, 2016

“Psychiatry is a pseudoscience.” — Tom Cruise

Pulse (2001) — May 10, 2016

Remember when the internet was so new and mysterious we thought it might plausibly contain demons? Now we know it’s just full of assholes.

Double feature this with The Midnight After.

Tokyo Sonata (2008) — May 12, 2016

Your soul is like a landscape fantasy,
Where masks and Bergamasks, in charming wise,
Strum lutes and dance, just a bit sad to be
Hidden beneath their fanciful disguise.

Singing in minor mode of life’s largesse
And all-victorious love, they yet seem quite
Reluctant to believe their happiness,
And their song mingles with the pale moonlight,

The calm, pale moonlight, whose sad beauty, beaming,
Sets the birds softly dreaming in the trees,
And makes the marbled fountains, gushing, streaming —
Slender jet-fountains — sob their ecstasies.

Creepy (2016) — June 11, 2016

To the Ends of the Earth (2019) — December 12, 2020

Wife of a Spy (2020) — April 24, 2021
