Youth Killer by Kazuhiko Hasegawa – Seishun no satsujin sha – A Fake Review

youth killer
Kazuhiko Hasegawa

Foreword: I began these notes before realizing this film is mildly fucking disgusting

Tsutomu Tamura

Immediate reminder of Scene at the Sea

That umbrella

“Don’t get mad, there are knives around”

“This is strictly a family matter”

“The law”

“The law is worthless!”

A mother’s son

Like mother like son

“I don’t want to fix flat tires at 45 years old”

“This is a coffin”

“A polyethylene coffin”

Oh god

“You shouted ‘This is the sea!’”


Borders on absurd / comedic

Subject matter weights it

oppressive the idea of ‘humor’ seems hysterical

out of it’s mind

The Situation determines the dialogue – understanding and exploiting it

places you in a hypothetic nightmare, explores all the wrong choices

..through the struggle, a child understands the weight of —– True capital punishment* more later

“I won’t have to work anymore”

“No more hard work”

“I’m glad”

takes this shit Serious

Gosh this dumb brat was handed everything

Hipster Revenge Film —

Revenge Without A Cause

I want to be sick

Could do without the flshbcks – not important

Thinking abt why Satoshi Kon [Tokyo Godfathers] chose ‘The Man Who Stole The Sun’ as top 100 in his farewell letter ..

Could it be the resolved fatalistic attitude?

* — ‘youth’ in a self-determined haze accomplishes all tasks with Disgusting Fury — safe. this film is a mirror of consequence which will come with ‘age’. a gross moral Tale!
