Black Rain

Black Rain ★★★★

Exceptionally drawn out in a way that works in overall context and sentiment but has a tendency to feel too apparent. The subject matter is unmistakably mortifying and Imamura does a fantastic job at upholding a sense of dread and sorrow. There's an extravagant amount of mindfulness to the characterization that's impassionedly bittersweet and soulful. As to be expected everything visually is impeccable, and showcased is a fine-tuned style that really knows how to allocates space to frames constructively. An adept look at excruciatingly harsh and somber themes that keeps reminding you why they're important and vital
