  2. joey Noodles's rating of the film The Shiinomi School

    Shimizu retains his charm and sense of childlike innocence, but this is a devastatingly sad and hopeless film. These children are victims of a society that is tightly bound by normality and the fact that (for reasons beyond them) they are different means they are forever on their own. Beautifully handled by Shimizu with his usual eye for composition, staging and an unprecedented understanding of children. 4.5/5
