      Audience Member all star cast incl. cameos make this meditation on death & dying go Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Strange film with Japanese sensibilities and director and lead, but American setting and majority of cast. Kenji dreams about death aka Mira Sorvino, and then she turns up to inform him he's next on her list. And then various quirky talky strangers turn up to fill the waiting. I quite liked this, it was a bit different and filled the time nicely. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Weird and strange. Philosophical and tries to be funny but after all is just weird and strange Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie could have been sooooo much better than it is. That itself frustrates me to no end. -To be further reviewed later. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Takeshi is too adorable to not be totally entranced by him. Yes the film is weird, has interesting scenes/dream sequences, and some odd characters who just appear for no reason... but that makes the film worthwhile. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie had good potential, but really failed to deliver in the end. It was a bit slow getting started, and even once it did, it meandered around so much that it really lost its way by the end. Mira and Takeshia are fine actors, but the script was weak and this movie just didn't do them any justice. Disappointing. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
