    Chizuko's Younger Sister

    ★★★★½

    Why, why, WHY is Nobuhiko Obayashi only known for "House" in the West for the most part? And why did I, ignoramus that I am, think that this would be similarly as weird or quirky? This has its moments of weirdness, its quirks, but something I've discovered now is that Obayashi was an incredibly multifaceted director that did much more than just confuse and delight audiences.
