All Critics (8) | Fresh (8)

  • ...a decidedly minor key film in [Tsukamoto's] oeuvre that's nevertheless equally as nihilistic and nasty as anything he's ever directed.

  • 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]

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • Fans of the genre, eager to see slicing and dicing, may become impatient with Mokunoshin's quest for an answer, but the action, when it comes, is all the more impactful.

    Nov 27, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.
