  • Anthony De Luca's rating of the film River

    While the scenes shot in the aftermath of the tsunami are harrowing, they feel a little shoe-horned in and distract from the main character arc. The handheld documentary style also left me rather cold in places, making me very aware the crew had a public audience on the Tokyo streets. The end credits song is well chosen. Thankfully Mickey Rooney is nowhere to be seen. That would have definetly killed the mood.
