Financial Times

Is it a black comedy? Is it a horror thriller? More wit and ingenuity might have made it Tarantino-esque.

Philip French

Overlong, drenched in blood and rather like attending a school for apprentice butchers.

Don't let me talk you out of it--after all, I'm no kibbitzer.

Peter Bradshaw

The grisly, absurd violence of the final hour puts a wrecking ball through whatever interest this film might have accumulated.

What Culture

Slack pacing aside, this is a disarmingly brutal, feral social satire.

Simon Miraudo

Overlong? A tad. Still, at two-and-a-half hours it's 90 minutes shy of its predecessor Love Exposure. Insane fun? Absolutely. Darkly funny and deliriously absurd in all of its bloody glory, I found it impossible to look away.

Just as with Suicide Club, the deliberate weirdness and detached tone of Cold Fish may initially leave audiences befuddled, but this a sign of its complexity.

The Skinny

The climax is formidably bloody, but if you've got the stomach for it, Shion Sono's ludicrous spectacle makes for compelling viewing.

Smart, devious, and confrontational filmmaking from a man who's quickly becoming a master at this sort of stuff.

hilarious, harrowing

There are gruelling, gleeful scenes of blood-drenched murder and dismemberment that will test even the hardest stomach.

Gallows humour and character twists offer welcome reprieve from the largely hysterical acting and rivers of viscera.

A deliciously warped wallow in misogyny, depravity and dead-eyed manipulation, "Cold Fish" charts the twisted alliance of two tropical-fish salesmen with baleful glee.

...the audacity of plot and growing blood-and-bones in 'Cold Fish' are engrossing for those not turned off.

Cold Fish is wild, head-turning, stomach-churning stuff, and it makes a bracing addition to the overstuffed canon of serial-killer cinema.

Aisle Seat

Cold Fish is artful and unnerving and, at times, repulsive. Its merit lies in an unrepentant willingness to be all of those things.

Radio Times

Purportedly based on fact, this is knowingly played with respective manic glee, anguished regret and slinky sexuality by Denden, Fukikoshi and Kurosawa.

This is London

Sono orchestrates his tale with a skill that allows irony to match the horror and realism to dampen down the melodrama. Altogether, it's quite a feat.
