last night i watched "Kokuhaku (Confessions)".
throughout the film i couldn't understand it's purpose.
i thought "my gosh. why would anyone make this!? what good will this do!?"
it touched on the unbelievably dark and sinister nature of some of these teenagers.
the bullying and complete lack of respect for others, made me feel repulsed and frightened.
though i wanted to look away, i couldnt.
the opening scene with Takako Matsu's speech was brilliant.
the whole film was beautifully shot. (and well worth a second watch just for this)
and with the ending, i realized the directors/writer's intentions.
i still feel haunted by it though.
a strange chill still lingers..
