  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Violence at Noon

  2. Samuel Donath's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    Stunning! One of the best openings of a film I have seen in recent years. We instantly are placed in the room with Oshmia's direction, and we get caught up in this complex story.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    >>> Une oeuvre dense et touffue qui, dans une première approche, peut se révéler confuse et quelque peu hermétique quant aux motivations et aboutissants des personnages, face à des événements dont les complexes interactions se nouent et se dénouent en sourdine et en catimini. www.cinefiches.com

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    It's not about the killer. It's about the relationship of the two women who have to live with what he did. Some fascinating editing and camerawork make this stand out.

  5. traag-1's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    ugh the editing was fantastic.

  6. paxy's rating of the film Violence at Noon

  7. R. M. Silva's rating of the film Violence at Noon

  8. Greg S.'s rating of the film Violence at Noon

    Deadly cycle of love/hate as what the viewer knows of the killer is forged from memories of two wounded love ones. The information/emotions compound in a fashion that's almost scientific but there is nothing detached about the film, whenever the women's testimonials start to feel like info dumps Oshima reminds the viewer how hard it is to exercise this kind of pain. Masterpiece.

  9. soporific's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    beautiful cinematography & intricate storytelling.

  10. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Violence at Noon

    At the heart of the film lies not a tale of murder but a love triangle unified by tragedy, miscommunication and a jarring detachment for life itself. Ôshima attacks the constant dehumanization of Japan's more debilitated socal circles, worn out by their daily toils without the proper emotional gratification, all of this shot with amazing skill.

  11. Yggdrasil's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    Awesome shots. The lenses used are so amazing. Sharp, great zoom for some shots, great bokeh!

  12. Anton Williams's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    Nice B&W shots. Especially it Akiko Koyama in the train and after.

  13. Ryan Estabrooks's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    A very goof film, I loved the shots and the cinematography just as much as the story. It still feels very fresh today, Oshima is the man!

  14. Alex Delarge's rating of the film Violence at Noon

    A film as stunning visually as Kurosawa's RASHOMON. This is not a crime film though Oshima subverts expectations with the first act, but an allegory condemning free love and the maggots that infest Maggie's Farm. Bob Dylan would be proud.
