  • Considering its five-year production history, Late Bloomer is a regrettably scattershot affair.

  • You have to meet the film's visual style halfway. It's shot in contrasty black and white, slo-mo, fast-mo, sometimes jagged cutting, sometimes an erratic hand-held camera that suggests the jerky way Sumida must view the world.

  • You might not like what you see, but you will appreciate it. And you certainly won't forget it for a while.

    July 25, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Weird, wicked and wonderfully perverse, Late Bloomer pulses with frigid energy. Watching it is like having your finger trapped in a light socket: no matter how much it hurts, you can't quite tear yourself away.
