Suicide Club

If you're a fan of Japanese cinema depressed about the lack of edgy new titles finding their way to the states, cheer up, TLA Releasing's release of the popular black comedy Suicide Club has finally landed on U.S. shores! Featuring a letterboxed presentation of a 1.85:1 image, the picture unfortunately shows distracting signs of compression artifacting, despite sporting solid colors and even skin tones. Edge enhancement is virtually nonexistent, though the wavering image is a bit distracting, even in the nighttime scenes. While most fans will simply appreciate TLA's efforts to import this title for their enjoyment, those with high-end audio/visual systems are certain to notice the flaws in the transfer. The only extras offered are a brief image gallery and four TLA Releasing trailers.

At first I thought this was just a cheesy horror/gore flick. You know, something typical of the japanese horror catagory. As I watched the movie, I soon began to realize that there was more to this than a simple linear story line. This movie was the most intricate and meaningful movie I have seen in a long time. The theme though diguised behind the blood and gore, is not about the promotion of suicide but rather the promotion of the love of oneself. This film takes a deeper look into the Japanese culture and leaves the viewer breathless afterwards. The actors did a good job in making their character seem real. There was even a scene where there weren't any words spoken but the intensity of the stares spoke volumes. I highly recommend this film if you are good at interpreting things.
