  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Book of the Dead

    2-3. Hoo boy. This one is a little difficult to assess in the same way Robert Eggers' 'The Witch' is. It embraces the nature of archaic Japanese fairy tales, becoming a string of evocative metaphors about zen buddhism. It also means completely disregarding contemporary storytelling sensibilities, which arguably gives it a weaker narrative engine as far as conflict is concerned. Definitely see it, though.

  2. s1gh6's rating of the film The Book of the Dead

    Classical plot about Buddhist religious passion. Weird graphic, but marvelous music. Must see for anime lovers.

  3. Simon So's rating of the film The Book of the Dead

  4. All Is Grace's rating of the film The Book of the Dead

    A bit weird, but a must see for stop motion animation and Kawamoto fans.
