Fun pseudo-noir that's a joy for film buffs. This is one of my favorite kinds of movies, a flick with a lot of distinct characters having conversations about things they enjoy. Plus the "campus film" aspect I really enjoyed.
As usual, the Japanese filmmakers did not disappoint in delivering a crazy, weird, but visually pleasing and well-thought out drama. Though probably due to cultural differences, some subplots felt unnatural in a substitution point of view (prof's affairs and the confession). Blending of fiction and reality at the end is very interesting, albeit leaving one a bit unsatisfied. now my IMDb watchlist just got +5 entries
When you make a movie about a movie you can get away with a few things: rampant romance tropes, cliché subplots, blatant self-reference, and maybe even murder. "Who's Camus Anyway?" stands on the titular author's philosophical novel "The Stranger," in which a man murders without apparent reason. Was the act sane? Insane? Was it right? Wrong? ->
