Late Bloomer (2004)
Critic Reviews for Late Bloomer
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.
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.
Strangest for genuinely empathizing with the monstrous Sumida-san as if he were the typical disabled lead in an inspirational heartstring-tugger.
