Editorial Reviews

Review

Subtle and subversive...splendidly done. -- International Herald Tribune, January 31, 2003

Wonderful...a prison movie unlike any that have come before it. -- Variety, November 10, 2002

From the Contributor

Director Sai Yoichi's films have often focused on outsiders and immigrants, a reflection of the director's own position as a Japanese-born Korean. Beginning his film career as an assistant director to Oshima Nagisa, Sai made his directorial debut in 1983 with A Mosquito on the Tenth Floor. Ten years later, All Under the Moon, a seriocomic tale of a Korean taxi driver working in Japan, was a major hit with both critics and audiences alike. Since then, the director has moved between commercial projects like the thriller Marks and the guide dog blockbuster Quill and more personal films such as Dog Race, a comedy about the friendship that develops between a policeman and his Korean-Japanese informer, and 2004's Blood and Bones, an epic biopic starring Takeshi Kitano as the real-life gangster who ruled Osaka's Korean ghetto for nearly fifty years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating glimpse inside the Japanese Prison system February 27, 2008
Format:DVD
Adapted from an autobiographical series of graphic novels chronicling the author's time spent inside the walls of a Japanese prison, "Doing Time," is a fascinating look at the very unique way Japan's penal system operates. Everything about it - the living arrangements, disciplinary structure, daily work routine, emphasis on hygiene and cleanliness, free time activities along with meals - is unlike anything you've ever seen in your typical American prison flick. If the prison movie genre is your thing I definitely recommend that you give this one a try, just don't expect any violence. For everyone else this film is still worth a view for the unique portrayal and commentary of Japanese society, along with an engaging storyline, characters and awesome display of the terrific food the prisoners are fed throughout this film (no joke!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Since there are no reviews yet... May 20, 2007
Format:DVD
I actually bought this movie by accident, and after watching it I was very glad I did. Great acting, interesting characters, and a facinating glipse at what life is like inside a Japanese prison. It has an almost documentary like feel to it that works extremely well. This sat on my shelf for months before I finally decided to give it a chance, and I literally could not take my eyes off it once it started. Well worth watching, I truely can not recommend this movie enough.
