DVD Talk review of 'Suicide Club'

I read John Wallis's DVD review of Suicide Club at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=9018 and...

thanks for the review. i own this and its a shame about the poor video quality of this DVD. i love the movie and would like a better DVD of it.

the 3rd act does get very odd and confusing, i liken it to Mulholland Drive, of course not as good. from what ive heard, they are making 2 sequels to this film and maybe more will be explained in the future. but then again, maybe not.

I almost bought it but had the opportunity to borrow it. Now I'm still on the fence about buying it. Just like others, I really liked it up until the 3rd act. Sort of a letdown. But I did like most of it, so maybe it's enough to push me to buy it. Some of the scenes are definately memorable.

While not great, I thought the video quality was very watchable. I've seen plenty worse.

I liked it the first time around. I'll be giving it a second viddey in a few weeks and I'll see if it grows on me a little more.

Another perspective

A quote from a really good review I found of the movie from Grim: "essentially the point of this film is to ask - what is more important in life - the things you surround yourself, or you? the kids are trying to force people to re-connect with themselves. you can lose everything but you still have YOU. and people don't get that in this film. they see only the forest and not the trees."

And I agree with what that. This is from a guy at http://www.jackasscritics.com/movie.php?movie_key=204.

This is why the movie makes a little sense to me. Yes, it was the satire on mainstream Japanese culture - the conforming youth, the people out for notoriety, the suicides themselves... The only thing is that the way in which those kids were trying to get their message across seemed like overkill but w/e. Otherwise it came off real good and horrorshow (~__^)
