Description: Oddball Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa directed this haunting police thriller about murder, mind control, and the power of charisma. Police Detective Takabe (Koji Yakusho) is tracking a series of bizarre murders, all committed in exactly the same manner: a giant X is slashed in the flesh of the victims. But that's where the similarities end. In each case, seemingly well-adjusted people suddenly kill without understanding why. Baffled, Takabe consults his psychologist friend Sakuma (Tsuyoshi Ujiki), who finds no relationships among the perpetrators and rules out any connection with the media.

"20.11. Blu-ray Pitkien ottojen ja etäisen ja kylmän kameratyön riemujuhlaa, jossa juurikin nämä tehokeinoina tekevät riipivän tunnelman. Kun enimmäkseen staattinen kamera lähteekin liikkeelle, on se heti kovin karmivaa. Olen ilmeisen rakastunut tällaiseen kerrontaan. Ääniraidalla ei juuri musiikkia kuulla, enimmäkseen korostettuja ympäristön ääniä. Tämäkin on häiritsevän tunnelman kannalta ansiokasta. Vaikka katsojalle annetaankin ymmärtää melko varhaisessakin vaihees"

" Date: 5/1/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: I always wanted to watch this movie for ages, but I can never find a copy of it. I don't remember it being released on R1 DVD or VHS when I was growing up. Thanks to Film Club Secret Cinema, I finally had the chance to watch this movie for the first time on the Criterion Channel. After watching this movie for the first time, I really like this movie a lot. The movie has a fascinating story because it feels very poetic at times. Th"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"20.6, PC Alkaa varsin tavanomaisena sarjamurhaajajännärinä, ja onkin hieno huomata miten tähän uppoutuu pikkuhiljaa syvemmälle ja syvemmälle. Ohjaaja Kiyoshi Kurosawa virittelee Cureen psykologista varausta siten, että siinä huomaa itse olevansa mukana vasta suhteellisen myöhäisessä vaiheessa. Loppupuolella huomasin kuumottelevani elokuvaa ihan tosissaan. Kummittelevat kohtaukset ja outo ilmapiiri toivat mieleen hiljattain katsomani Pulsen, ja yllätys yllätys myös tämä on saman"
