Marina Antunes [Celluloid 12.16.13] Japan action thriller drama

Our French correspondent heralded the Mo Brothers as destined for greatness after seeing the pair's debut feature Macabre (review) and having seen the first trailer for the duo's follow-up, the Sundance selected Killers, I can definitely see why so many folks were so darned excited.

Oh the sweet, sweet violence of this trailer! It's the kind of awesomeness that's usually reserved for a Sono or Miike production and here it looks like it's elevated to 11.

Mr. Nomura is an eerily handsome, sharply dressed, sociopathic serial killer who preys on the women of Tokyo. In Jakarta, a world-weary journalist named Bayu finds himself unexpectedly falling into vigilantism after brutally killing two sadistic robbers. When each posts videos of their violent sprees online, the pair find one another on the Internet and begin a toxic and competitive duel. While Bayu clings to the hope that he can resume a normal life, Nomura continues to spill blood without remorse. Killing, advises Nomura, is something everyone ought to consider.

Hopefully a theatrical release will follow the movie's sure to be successful festival run.
