Death Note

Death Note

"The Death Note itself represents a nightmarish wish-fulfilment fantasy for a younger generation used to effecting change with the push of a button, while always being one screen removed from the real world of impact and repercussion. Yet it also serves as an ingeniously reflexive figure for the film’s screenplay (co-written by Charles and Vlas Parlapanides and Jeremy Slater) – a tightly plotted scenario that has already been inscribed by a lot of other hands and is constantly being revised, expanded and altered as the production plays out, while always leading irrevocably to the same fixed endpoint. That said, the film’s suspended conclusion leaves plenty of blank pages for yet more sequels."
