"18.7 PC Idea hirtetystä miehestä, joka menettää vain muistinsa kuoleman sijaan ja jolle täytyy opettaa teonsa merkitykset (ja monet muut asiat) uudestaan on loistava ja etenkin alkupuolella tästä saadaan aikaan hyvää huumoria ja pointteja, mutta hieman aletaan menettämään tehoja kun elokuva muuttuu liiankin yksipuoliseksi jahkaamiseksi ja saarnaamiseksi. Kuolemantuomiota vastustan itsekin, mutta vähemmälläkin olisi tullut viesti perille ja potentiaalia olisi ollut paljon enempä"

"A documentary-like opening introduces a death chamber where an execution is about to take place. Inexplicably, the man to be executed, an ethnic Korean known only as R, survives hanging but loses his memory. The officials who witness the hanging debate how to proceed, as the law could be interpreted as forbidding execution of an individual who does not recognize their crime and its punishment. They decide that they must persuade R to accept guilt by reminding him of his crimes - at this point th"

"24/02/2011 (PC) Jokainen rakastaa sitä tunnetta, kun jokin elokuva tulee ja yllättää täysin kaikki odotukset, jos jotain odotuksia on ehtinyt asettaakaan elokuvaa kohtaan. Kutakuinkin näin itselläni kävi Death by Hangingin tapauksessa. Ohjaaja Nagisa Oshima oli tuttu (teko)taiteellisen pornoelokuvan Aistien valtakunta myötä, eikä kyseinen elokuva ainakaan suhtautumistani ohjaajaa kohtaan vakuuttanut suuntaan tai toiseen. Death by Hangingin tiesin kyllä olevan toista maata, mutta silt"
