Grim ★★½

There is no review for this diary entry. Add a review?

Among the likes of Peter Tscherkassky, Takashi Ito knew how to make experimental short films, especially those concerning the supernatural.

Grim is a chilling ghost story. Ingeniously implementing double-exposure and fast-motion photograph, the short detaches and repelled the conscious mind of the audience, while reeling in and grasping the subconscious, bewitched by its haunting spell.

It's a cinematic manifestation of the afterlife; a ghost condemned for the rest of eternity within the doors it once inhabited on the other side of mortality. A touching 8 minutes, bound to last in the mind of the viewer far more than that. That is all.
