  1. Gbok's rating of the film Half-Life in Fukushima

    This film is a love letter to its protagonist, its world, its texture (seriously, the 16mm film make it almost a tactile experience) and to the cinematic medium in general. This film is a beautiful object crafted by skilled artisans. Like the best artworks, it evokes. It's not a tale, it's the chant of a monk. It doesn't tell you how to feel about something, it simply makes you feel. 4.5: Art

  2. EdieEmm's rating of the film Half-Life in Fukushima

    An incredible story: One man holding out alone - both catalyst and custodian - in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the evacuated Fukushima red zone. Surreal, abandoned cityscapes, entire architectures of contamination and waste, nature and decay in unmitigated contest... Cinematic gold, squandered. A long, unfulfilling 60 minutes, unnecessarily reliant on obvious & heavyhanded 'artistic' devices. Disappointing. 2.5
