Critic Reviews for Canary
If the writer-director, Akihiko Shiota, sometimes strains too hard for mythic import, his patience is a gift. As Yuki watches a blind woman fashion an origami bird, the characters' connection to a simpler, collective past is evident in every perfect fold.
It lacks the punch of Shiota's previous explorations of traumatized teen spirits, but the film still leaves bruises in all the right places.
I was counting off the minutes long before a silly "saved from the blessings of civilization" non-ending.
The Orient's relatively-eloquent answer to Eminem's 8-Mile and 50-Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin', replete with gangsta' rap on the soundtrack.
Gripping "road movie" featuring two remarkably well-developed 12 year old characters played consummately by two gifted child actors. Set against backdrop of infamous Tokyo subway sarin massacre cult.
