ChickenNunget’s review published on Letterboxd:
So so so uncomfortable. Kobayashi is a genius.
206 minutes of people being whipped, broken, burned, electrocuted, beheaded, shot, stabbed, and raped by their fellow man. It will put a knot in your stomach.
Kaji is just a man who wants to do the right thing. He wants people to be happy. Unfortunately he lived during World War II. Doing the right thing left you dead. My heart shatters knowing there are two more of these.
