Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris ★★★★½

Brings Kaneko’s trilogy to a surprisingly Evangelion-adjacent conclusion, complete with childhood trauma, shadowy cosmic horror conspiracies, and an ending more concerned with emotional resolution than with narrative resolution. Easily the best of the three in my eyes and a masterful kaiju movie in its own right, bolstered by slow-burn pacing, brooding 80s-PG tone (seriously, whole lotta bad things happening to bodies in this one) and spectacular action scenes. Hell of a final cut to black, too - some cliffhanger endings are better off without the threat of a sequel.
