Bence Bardos’s review published on Letterboxd:
hyper-violent, disillusioned ronin tale by toshio matsumoto. a fairly notable departure from 'funeral parade of roses', executed rather well (pun very much intended). lighting and camera in particular are stellar, playing with the darkness and shadows of black and white, translating the sets into the eerie stage of human corruption.
