Critic Reviews for Jigoku
Shot mostly on bare studio sets with a lighting style even more theatrical than the acting, it feels like a weird piece of fringe theatre in three acts.
the film's bleak portrayal of sin and (maybe) redemption is easily adapted to any time, even if Nakagawa's particular version is unimaginable in any decade but the Sixties.
Audience Reviews for Jigoku
Confusing. The hell part is interesting at the end, but sticking around long enough to get to it is a challenge. It is probably actually quite a good movie for its time, but very hard to follow. Or maybe I was just in the wrong frame of mind to watch it. Parts of it are quite kitschy and clever.
