Vital sees Tsukamoto, a director who is never less than fascinating, in his finest form, tackling the mysteries of human identity with an elegiac calm. Vital viewing.

Beautiful and disturbing, this Asian horror art film explores the intersection between madness and grief with a serene calm that belies the psychological turmoil under its silken surface.

Vital offers its share of disturbing images and gristly medical-lab sound effects, but in the end, its pursuit of closure is surprisingly hopeful.

Macabre yet oddly poignant, graphically physical but also metaphysical, clinical yet unexpectedly soulful.

As expected, Tsukamoto attacks as many of your senses as possible.
