Critic Reviews for Tatsumi
Western viewers might liken it to Disney meets The Dark Knight.
Singaporean director Eric Khoo's stylishly impressive homage to the mangaka, converting his memoir, A Drifting Life, into a cinematic work employing animation that is true to Tatsumi's original work.
It's potent stuff, delving into pornography, incest, murder and mutilation in the company of alienated men and unhappy, sometimes cruel women.
If the structure sometimes disrupts the story of his life, the strong lines and melancholy sensibility of the illustration form an anchor that keep the power of Tatsumi's work firmly in view.
If Khoo's film doesn't amount to more than its parts, more often than not those parts are vivid and arresting.
