  3. Ostermyers's rating of the film Barren Illusions

    It's like the perfect preparation for the Kairo universe. Kurosawa is just showing modern "Ningen Johatsu". Master. more 4,5 than 5 but whatever.

  4. mithono's rating of the film Barren Illusions

    I barely remember any of this movie but as nobody else has commented I'll start by saying that it's an interesting mood-piece. Messed up teenage characters in a very Japanese way. It stays pretty calm throughout and that's the strength of it. That's if I remember correctly of course.
