  • The strength of the film is less on the action than the fully embodied characters ...

  • Yukisada takes the somewhat far-fetched story of the original in order to direct a film that focuses on the kids of the era, and the consequences the lack of guidance from parents and teachers ( which are almost non-existent in the film) have to youths.

    November 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The movie is dour, and poignant, and dour, and poetic, and dour. But the positives outweigh the negatives, and it does end with a glimmer of hope among the gloom.

    March 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Gratuitous sex and violence in Japanese teen drama.

    March 12, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A two-hour drudgery that solves a mystery whose answer was never pressing with the silliest possible solution. There's a wide chasm between realism and misanthropy, and River's Edge falls on the wrong side of that gap.

    November 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An over-extended but otherwise involving drama.
