Critic Reviews for Tatsumi

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (1)

  • Western viewers might liken it to Disney meets The Dark Knight.

    January 25, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 24, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's potent stuff, delving into pornography, incest, murder and mutilation in the company of alienated men and unhappy, sometimes cruel women.

    April 4, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • The slightly slushy tone of celebration rather obtusely fails to engage with the nihilist, pessimist nature of Tatsumi's work. Anyway, an intriguing event.

  • Ultimately, it's disappointing that a film with so many positive elements falls so flat.

    August 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The overall impact is one of the art reflecting upon the artist, of characters chronicling the formation and maturation of their creator.
