Critic Reviews for Killing (Zan)

All Critics (9) | Fresh (9)

  • "Killing" presents an impressive combination of meaningfulness and aesthetics that results in one of the best films of the year, and a truly worthy entry to the samurai genre, through its extreme, but quite realistic approach to the whole concept.

    December 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • ...a decidedly minor key film in [Tsukamoto's] oeuvre that's nevertheless equally as nihilistic and nasty as anything he's ever directed.

    July 22, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Elegantly, (Shin'ya) Tsukamoto leaves the door open to interpretations, something that is naturally appropriate for Killing's undeniable condition of a modern classic. [Full Review in Spanish]

    July 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It wouldn't be a Tsukamoto film without entangled brutality and sexuality, frustrations taken out in furtive masturbation, physical assault as lust, and other attacks on the flesh.

    March 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Killing (Zan)] twists and writhes its way to a bloody climax and by then you become well aware of the wondrous weirdness of the samurai.

    January 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • In Killing, the only thing worse than being killed is becoming a killer yourself. It's a message counter to many a samurai myth - and a movie counter to many a samurai film.
