    Do the 'Jelly-Fish!' Wait, that's a different 'Sting Of Death.

  5. InsertOzuReferencehere's rating of the film The Sting of Death

    "Oh how we struggle in preventing the past from consuming us."

  6. Gondo's rating of the film The Sting of Death

    By reshuffling our spatial orientation through careful staging techniques, Oguri is able to expand the scope of this very human sadness with almost every cut. The first scene is exemplary for that. She looks away out of disgust, he looks at her because he cares but than the camera gives us an overview and both of them actually just stare at the wall in front of them, disconnected from each other. A literal nightmare.

  7. Patapon's rating of the film The Sting of Death

    The second most powerful Japanese film I've seen (Shindo's Naked Island is my bread and butter). I'm absolutely enthralled by Kohei Oguri.
