Audience Member Rewatch for fresh rating. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/21/17 Full Review Audience Member A nice and quiet movie. While I probably didn't get the whole picture(The movie was about high school life, something that I never experienced in Japan :P ), I still enjoyed it. Nicely shot too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member The repeatedly back & forth narrative, just makes this actually dull coming-of-age storyline even much more annoying. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member The Kirishima Thing [Japan, 2012] I always like it when a movie plays around perspectives... I want two more hours of this. 8/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member An ingenious mystery film featuring Japanese high school students from different clubs whose lives were affected by the missing title character. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a bit squirelly, but that's perhaps apropos for a movie about intersections of subcultures in school. The movie's not great, but it has its moments. And some honest and awkward interactions. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
