  1. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Himiko

    I wonder if Jodorowsky has seen it and felt inspired.

  2. Matt Rolls's rating of the film Himiko

  3. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Himiko

    I thought of Pasolini's Oedipus-- stylized ancient narrative juxtaposed with modernity.

  4. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Himiko

  5. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Himiko

    A horrifying rendering of a Japanese legend. And I mean that in the best way possible.

  6. kaffe matthews's rating of the film Himiko

    I want to watch this now.. possible?

  7. tibber's rating of the film Himiko

    This reminded me a lot of This Color of Pomegranates and Marketa Lazarova in that I had no idea what was going on most of the time but was enthralled anyway. This solidifies Shinoda as my favorite of the Japanese New Wave.

  8. Verimage's rating of the film Himiko

    Brilliant ... The aspect ration stated in data is wrong though ... Maybe not a biggie but well, with films of such visual emphasis it maybe should be stated right ...

  9. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Himiko

    A brisk, elegant and very fine account of the legendary Japanese shaman queen Himiko. To my attention one of the best - if underrated - stagings of ancient Japanese lore I've seen. As with all of Shinoda's work, the craft is superb and especially worth noting is how he narrates the events almost exclusively through an extense series of rituals, idiosyncratic storytelling to say the least.
