Audience Member 3 and 1/2 hours of some of the most visually exciting cinema ever made. Yoshida is a true underrated master of the art. Quite possibly the best biopic I've ever seen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful photography, but the story itself fell flat to me. Extremely tiresome at times. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Si le film est archi-compliqué à suivre et qu'il nécessite certainement plusieurs visionnements en plus de la version longue, on ne peut enlever que le film est d'un esthétisme renversant et d'une poésie raffinée et conplexe. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member "Eros + Massacre" is a brilliant monument of Japanese New Wave cinema. While the picture is breathtakingly beautiful, the complex and profound message offers you intellectually stimulative experience. Placing self-contradiction that both revolutionary ideas and love share in the central theme, the director tries to rescue the collapsing path to justice, though he knows he would never succeed. Try this mind-blowing masterpiece. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
