Caniba is no Leviathan, but there is something undeniably fascinating at work.

Makes a proud point of its unpleasantness.

[A] frequently uncomfortable but always fascinating work ...

a format that is near unwatchable: long handheld shots, drifting in and out of focus, that uncompromisingly hold the gaze of Issei and/or Jun - both now aged and ailing - in extreme close up, long after they have run out of things to say.

Though compelling as the subject matter is, I feel Paravel and Castaing's unrelenting close-ups and bizarre editing choices, are going to make this a "hard pass" for a lot of people.

The use of extreme close-up, often out of focus, invites us to focus on Sagawa's flesh and virtually press up against him, but unless you are innately phobic about cannibals this isn't a very interesting experience.
