  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Serpent's Path

    It's best to think of this movie as part of a double-feature with 'Eyes of the Spider'. They share a leading man, a release year and a theme: revenge. Sho does not appear to be a man interested in revenge. He's a math professor. But he becomes entangled and his motives only become clear later on.

  2. mlstrx's rating of the film Serpent's Path

    i suspect that there is much more to this film that i didn't catch this time, but i still enjoyed it a lot. the whole scene in the factory towards the end is incredible.

  3. Miggy Angel's rating of the film Serpent's Path

    s'like a reservoir dogs for mystics

  4. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Serpent's Path

    9 - Already an extremely impressive film if you DON'T take into account the fact that Kurosawa produced it (plus another film) in two weeks, on a tiny budget. Less elliptical than "Cure", but equally as affecting, this surreal, coarse but never clunky crime tale acts as an astonishing essay on the susceptibility of the human mind to the urge to perpetuate cycles of violence, how they propagate, and how it must end.

  5. Tendoza's rating of the film Serpent's Path

    Pretty devastating. Like a nightmare brought to life, progressing further and further into abstracted space, and characters being put down like animals---death as a means of becoming a corpse and nothing more. Evil's beyond our comprehension, even when we're part of it.
