Default [Review] Confessions

We marvel at this gripping thriller from Third Window Films.

A cracking film! I think it's safe to say that it's my favorite Japanese movie!

Personally, I was disappointed by this film, given how much I loved his previous films (Kamikaze Girls and Memories of Matsuko -- I've yet to see Paco and the Magical Book). I found it a pretty contrived revenge thriller and not the kind of thing that I have much interest in.
