Training Day 6/10
Not bad. Solid story with some clever twists, good cinematography, a nice score, and very good acting. The ending, a few of the scenes, and certain characters in the film were very dull though. There were also some shots that were obviously borrowed from films the director liked. One that stood the most out too me was the taxi-driver shot. For some reason it annoyed me It's good, not great.
Perfect Blue directed by Satoshi Kon - 9.5/10
This is one of the very best anime films I've seen with its Hitchcock-like suspense and Lynch surrealism. This film seems to have inspired Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan with its similar visual style and thematic elements. However, this film is better with its relentless depiction of a girl going mad, or is she? The world in the film is very confusing but engaging enough to make you care, I'll want to revisit this film but its quite disturbing so it'll take me sometime before I return to its world.
