Plot – Spoilers:
Suicide Club has one of the most spectacular openings to a movie when a line of smiling girls throw themselves in front of an approaching train. The police haven’t a clue, as the body count continues to pile with more and more teenagers killing themselves for no apparent reason. Almost on a whim. Like a fad. Not even having been told to “Kill yourself.”
it’s an okay movie, but the sequel Noriko’s Dinner Table is definitely better
Very intriguing and atmospheric until the introduction of the goofy glam gang. That, and everything after, was so fucking stupid and nonsensical.
poorly explained, not really well developed
great concept but painfully mediocre execution. though i guess i’m incredibly grateful since without the underdeveloped plot we wouldn’t have noriko’s dinner table.
Today I watched Suicide Club
awful movie no cap
This reminds me of that movie “Kairo”
I thought it was ok. Great to be able to tick it off the list. Interesting but strange.
The manga is waaay better than this.
suicide club, the club i would joined in highshool
Oh I see now it s Siono. ..Knda fitting actually: Very good.. then pretty bad and too nonsensically random. There s a very “professional amateurialness” in the style of Siono’s cinema that is quite charming and endearing, but that (real shame) ends up often in an insubstantial shallownes that reveals a heavy poverty of real genius and brilliance at the foundation.
Still, not too bad until the feeble connections holdin it together, that at first result even ineteresting in some way, start falling apart and turn into a mere emptiness of sort… For the opening (and not much more) I would have to raccomand it.
I remember I liked Llove Exposure very much (i have a bit of a thing for cults and that kind of stuff) it was the first of his movies I saw tho and I m afraid I ll realize it has the same characteristic at a second watch .
I go random too tho now, Anybody s seen liverleaf? That was heavy hard.. and personally I wouldn’t have pushed it that far but…. if we talk disturbing !! I think it s Eisuke Naito’s, possibly hard to find (I didn’t check on this site. ) And same director, from manga, odd really for me but I loved one called something with leichi in the title, or similar , the fruit anyhow. …Very peculiar and… well I d say one of those things that are not for many, but pushy in some unexpected ways and pretty creative and more solid and well done than it might seem imo ……
Ah, Sion sono…….by looking at his picture in IMDB you can tell this dude is sick genius. My favorite work is guilty of romance in which he portraits the collapse of his society’s values in a nice way.
fuck me japane
Trust the stupid Americans in the comments to not understand what is going on. Fucking morons
