A Man's Face Shows His Personal History Directed by Tai Katô

Critics reviews

It’s not exactly sparkling material, but I was drawn in by director Tai Katô’s extremely unusual camera style, which largely eschews camera movement in favor of a staccato of static widescreen compositions that are claustrophobically cropped or framed from extremely low angles. It gives the camera an fatalistically alienated point-of-view.
