First of all, I pity those who are going into this movie without experience because their minds are gonna come away totally scathed! This is one of those movies that will change your world, or the way you look at the world and what you think you know about it! Thankfully, I like to think of myself as one of the veterans and this was just a walk in the park for me. That experience should be a good thing, and it is but it is also a bad thing!
Bad because with my experience with these kinds of movies, I found myself totally under-whelmed by it! It felt to me like they were just trying too hard, and totally failing. No, fail is a harsh way to look at it because that logic only applies to those with experience with movies like these. To others, this might as well be a masterpiece. Well, that is after they have finally come to terms with the movie!
To those who need spoon-feeding, this movie is very, VERY disturbing! Komatsu Nana (yes, that’s her name! I know which Komatsu Nana you are thinking of, in fact even google thinks of that same Komatsu Nana when you search with it but it is not NANA’s Komatsu Nana!) was magnificent in her role as Kanako! Even as her story was told via flashbacks through her father’s investigations, Nana totally stole the whole show! She has to have been paid billions for this role because if she wasn’t, Japan I am judging you! Seriously, Nana was amazing in this movie! She did stuff that would A-List any actor/actress that is brave enough to actually go through with what she had to do for her scenes! I don’t want to give anything away in case you want to watch it (well other than the yuri parts because that’s the point for this post) but I will just warn you by quoting myself once again…THIS MOVIE IS DISTURBING!
With that out of the way, let’s get to the interesting parts, starting with me shouting…
MORIKAWA AOI YOU LIAR!
