  • Schible's documentary - while not particularly well shot - is a very useful insight into the work of a major composer.

    October 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Those who are interested in how documentarians capture artistry on film will find good examples in Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda. It helps to come to the film with some foreknowledge of Sakamoto's career, however.

    August 16, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Isn't a life story or a deep-dive character study. Rather it is a heartfelt mediation on the creative process, with elegantly presented ideas on nature, music, mortality and things out of tune.

    August 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Stephen Nomura Schible's documentary, Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA is not only a portrait of a great artist, but a sensitive and engrossing depiction of the act of creation and its process.

    July 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Simply by lingering with his pensive, compelling subject at the keyboard, or engaging Sakamoto (discreetly) in his thoughts on his life and his music, Schible casts a spell and captures the spirit of a uniquely gifted composer.

    July 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The intimate documentary "Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda" finds the accomplished composer in a deeply introspective place in both his life and career.
