  • Uzumaki



    To be fair, Akihiro Higuchi's movie adaptation of Uzumaki does have certain ambitions. Its wild cinematography and editing style don't always work to enhance the experience but when they do, it adds to the overall fever-dreamish atmosphere that fits this story of odd occurrences.

He made money by getting the rights for videogame franchises (even though he hates videogames) and making deliberately terrible films that have barely anything to do with the source material. To add to his image, he makes fun of his critics and builds up a solid infamy that…
