I hope you’re all in good health.
This has been a pretty movie filled week for me and I feel somewhat The World of Kanako Tsumabukienergised because of it. I started the week with What Time is it Over There? and Rampo Noir and that was quickly followed by Nightcrawler and at the end of the week I watched a selection of Koji Shiraishi films like Occult and Cult. By the time this post goes live I’ll be in work and after that I am heading to my favourite cinema with an acquaintance from Japan to watch the British film, Mr Turner.

I mentioned my need to crank up the speed with which I review things and I can confirm that I have two film reviews completed with one more almost finished and they all come in at less than one thousand words. You’ll have to be the judge as to whether they are any good or not 😉

The review I posted this week was for The World of Kanako, a stellar film I had a blast watching because it was intellectually and emotionally moving, full of fine performances from many great young and established actors and a visual tour de force. I highly recommend the film which gets a western release courtesy of Third Window Films next year.
