“A very entertaining narrative dealing with the birth of desire and exploring the importance of assuming a symbolic place from where one can desire and speak.”
“Ninagawa’s representation of the final years of Dazai’s life is an enjoyable experience.”
“A truly pleasing ride that sensibly explores the narcissistic dynamic of the image/ego between the subject and the Other/other.”
“We decided to sit down with him and interview him about the current state of the Japanese industry, how he became a film-critic, his style of reviewing and more.”
