...interesting but not essential viewing.

The last piece in this ghostly triptych of films, Peter Chan's Going Home, is as beautiful and sad a piece of urban gothic as you are ever likely to see...

Decent but not as impactful or noteworthy as its predecessor.

This time around we are treated to three more (apparently these are actually the first three shorts in the series) stories that are little more then edgy Twilight Zones with an Asian flair.

These three all seemed a overly convoluted and as if there was much being "lost in translation". In a more cultural then litteral sense.

While each was interesting in it's own wasy. the third installment (Going Home) was by far the most impressive. But even this felt a little OVER developed and unnecessarily convoluted.

Memories had an interesting concept, but was a touch dull while actually watching it, apart from one particular scene which I won't ruin for people who've not viewed it. The Wheel had a lot more going on, but personally I didn't care much for it. The soundtrack was rather effective though. Going Home was probably my favourite of the three, it was both well crafted and unusual. In fact, I'm debating whether to buy the film based entirely on the strength of this short.
