Relentlessly unpleasant and ultimately banal.
I grew tired of the nihilism of "The World of Kanako" long before it was over, and I have a high tolerance for that sort of thing, so that has to be taken into account when assessing the overall product, but the quality of the filmmaking never flags.
Remorseless, repetitious and ultimately tedious.
Yakusho's breathless, riveting performance grounds The World of Kanako even as it threatens to devolve into an unbearable series of nihilistic plot twists and gory set pieces.
The nihilistic atmosphere eventually becomes so oppressive that it swallows everything in its path.
Whilst not a film for everyone due to its nihilistic attitude and frequent physical and sexual violence, The World of Kanako is a must-see for fans of off-beat cinema.
The World of Kanako is a mixed bag of cinematic influences and styles.
If you can handle the excessive nihilism, The World of Kanako may reveal itself to be something more than just a punishing journey, revealing a family rot that's been handed down from father to daughter.
The World of Kanako [is a] joy to watch even as it dives thematically deeper and deeper into the tarriest pits of humanity.
This frantic, fractured movie is unpleasant in a variety of ways, and is probably for fans of Japanese cult movies only.
The results are a well-organized mess.
