Set in Tokyo, this disturbing thriller follows three people facing a mystery that defies temporal explanation as a young man named Taguchi kills himself and later appears as a spectral computer image. Soon more of the city's denizens vanish in a similar fashion, with their ghostly souls turning up on the same Internet site. Can Taguchi's co-worker (Kumiko Aso), a college slacker (Haruhiko Kato) and a computer whiz (Koyuki) solve the conundrum?

"8.8. Blu-ray Teknologian kehittyminen pelottaa ja internet tekee ihmisistä yksinäisiä ja surullisia. Tai enemmänkin tuo totuuden esille yksilölle. Tämän oivalluksen jälkeen, oletkin jo aave. Halpaa digikuvaa muistuttava kylmä ja väritön filmi olisi perin rumaa jossain muussa kontekstissa, mutta tässä tukee teemoja sekä tarinaa. Montaa vuotta myöhemmin ei olisi tarvinnut valmistua ollakseen lähinnä korni, mutta koska internetsyrjäytyminen ei ollut valmistumisen aikaan vielä ol"

"Empowered by the rise of the internet culture, spirits draw humans away from one another, entombing them in a realm of their own private obsessions. Does this even count as a metaphor anymore? Until the recent The Bling Ring, Pulse is the closest a film has come to fully capturing the paradoxical and deceptively empowering trap of online societies that allow you to indulge an illusion of socialization alone in the privacy of your own home. Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s ferocious act of despairing protest"

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

"30.4, PC Pulse sisältää varmasti parhaimman näkemyksen kummituksista mitä olen elokuvissa nähnyt. Henget ovat tavallaan päämäärättömästi haahuilevia ja depressiota huokuvia ilmestyksiä. Niiden tumma ulkomuoto ja tiivis mutta rauhallinen kuvaustyyli luo hienoa painajaismaista tunnelmaa, joka valehtelematta kipristää vatsanpohjasta jonkunverran. Periaatteessa tälle voisi antaa jopa puolikkaan lisää, ellei katselua olisi tarvinnut jatkaa seuraavana päivänä päiväsaikaan, ja "
