Audience Reviews for Rampo
Stylish puzzlebox romance about Edogawa Rampo, Japan's answer to Edgar Allan Poe. in Okuyama's film, Rampo becomes infatuated with a femme fatale, who may or may not be a character he has created, and pursues her across the literary/reality divide in the person of his fictious alter-ego. Tricky material played relatively straight, through overlapping reenactments of famous Rampo stories, without any of the PoMo snarkiness of Charlie Kaufman or the bitter cynicism of Woody Allen. Definitely unique.
Lovely, mysterious, and evocative -- A character study in which the author's grotesque and pulpish creations wander in and out of his life. Has a peculiarly foggy sex scene in which several pornographic movies are superimposed, with shadows superimposed upon THEM, finally with real sex superimposed on it all. Art direction and photography are superb.
