    Rurouni Kenshin Part II: Kyoto Inferno

    ★★★½

    i’m having a blast! performances by every single cast member is memorable and commendable, and i have to give a shoutout to all the kid actors in here. the times i got goosebumps from watching this were mostly due to the incredible performances by the kids! the portrayal of such raw emotions… i have no other words except wow.

    i would have given this a 4 star because i’m glad i agree with many other reviews that this definitely lives…

    this was so, so personal. every single second is raw and real and almost painful to watch. the themes around islam explored, i related to as a muslim, and it felt all the more real to me. the rap lines were gorgeous and left me speechless. i genuinely got goosebumps every time.

    the sonic tension in intense moments made it possible for the audience to go through things Zed did, and you can feel the world slip away from you eventhough…
