      Audience Member One would think that someone who has lived as an extraordinary life as Ryuichi Sakamoto would deserve a more engaging document of his career. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review simon f An incredible film about an incredible man. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member At times violence for the sake of violence. The point could have been made without the all the violence. Disappointed. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member AWESOME! This movie takes lot's of twists and turns that really get you on the edge of your seat, definitley a must have!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member An intimate and poignant portrait of the greatest living composer. Sakamoto dialogues with Nature and lays himself bare by telling us about the disease that has struck him. Speaking of Bach he says that "his chorales were the voice of a people who were suffering, hungry, dying of the plague. The music inspired by Fukushima must be the choral of my times, with its tragedies". Masterpiece. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Sometimes you don't know you need to see a film until you see it. This is one of those films. Recommended most highly.

      David Stratton The Australian Schible's documentary - while not particularly well shot - is a very useful insight into the work of a major composer. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 26, 2018 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Those who are interested in how documentarians capture artistry on film will find good examples in Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda. It helps to come to the film with some foreknowledge of Sakamoto's career, however. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 16, 2018 Full Review Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail Isn't a life story or a deep-dive character study. Rather it is a heartfelt mediation on the creative process, with elegantly presented ideas on nature, music, mortality and things out of tune. Rated: 3/4 Aug 2, 2018 Full Review Cory Woodroof 615 Film Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA flows with the same haunting grace that latches itself on to one of Sakamoto's iconic scores or compositions. Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Morgan Rojas Cinemacy A sensational portrait of a legendary musical poet. I could watch this 100 times and still be fascinated by its beauty. Rated: 4.5/5 Dec 7, 2020 Full Review Karen Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Stephen Schible's documentary biography of the great film composer is not only an interesting portrait of an artist but a sensitive and engrossing exploration of the act of creation itself.
