    Hana-bi takes the time to appreciate the simple beauty of life while also constantly reminding the audience that death is not far away. The ultraviolence and the scenes of simple beauty in nature and love may be in stark contrast to one another, but Kitano smoothly transitions from one to the other with the help of Joe Hisaishi's gorgeous soundtrack.

    Solid low budget thriller. Unsettling but also kind of touching.

    I Saw the Devil

    While I appreciate the message, the movie lets you in on it too soon, and with nobody to root for, the ending feels a little shallow. I found it a bit underwhelming and unsatisfying.

    True to Murakami, Burning leaves more questions than answers, and delivers a meditative and mysterious story. But does it justify 2 1/2 hours?
