Taking a ichi the killeresque/fight club kind of story, mixed with a fantastic array of long takes and shots, this director who is used to doing music videos and commercials makes a fantastic debut into this kind of industry.

The start of the movie which is a mix of scenes shoots us into a very realistic movie. The characters are very easy to attach to and although a bit cartoony in the beggining begins to engage us into its loop.

Based on a manga by Santa Inuoe who is known for his Tokyo Tribes manga currently done by Tokyo pop, this was an adaption made from a manga done back in 1993. The style of art wasn't pleasing to my visual pallete but the movie itself was very good to its form.

The DVD is awesome, my 2 disk edition came with a Tshirt saying "Caution: May contain homicidal murderer" with the movies mascot on a white triangle. It includes some amusing previews but has a large making of, from manga to screen, and a bunch of MYV promotional things. I was a bit upset by the lack of deleted scenes (they involved Kaneda AKA takashi miike) but the quality of the other extras plus image gallery balanced it out.

The dubbing was also quite good, although not as good as the original cast in its original language, was not bad to the casual dubbed watcher.

I bought it because of the shirt, and was very happy at after watching the movie. You'll laugh a few times at the dark humor and be emersed in the suspense the movie has to offer.

Enjoy it! I know I did.

DVD Review: Tokyo Shock version. 2 Disc set. Depending what you get, you'll get a tee-shirt with the package, a documentary, MTV thing, deleted scenes, making of and some sneak peek thing. The picture quality is good and audio is good.

Movie Review: SO(!!!!!!!!!!) did I watch a paradox, a delusion or WHAT?!?!? I don't get it. I thought the majority of the movie was the reality until I read the opinions of these people saying that the final moments of the movie is the reality. WHAT? Well if that is the case, this movie sucks. I just watched a delusion; a hypothesis. And if THAT'S the case then what's the point of it all??? Plus the acid thing made no sense either. When acid is poured on your face it leaves a scar and yet the protagonist didn't have one (though his alter ego did). *shrugs in consternation* Alrighty then. Well, anyways, the violence is good... Oh wait! That never happened! The horror elements are good..... Oh that's right! That didn't happen either! The story is revenge based which is typical but adding the element of an alter ego who is psychotic was great.... OH! THAT NEVER HAPPENED EITHER!!! So if the paradoxical conclusion was real then this movie was ruined from the beginning and (leaving me to give all of you a logical berating) only a delusional moron would find this movie brilliant.

Conclusion: 4 stars for the DVD, 1 star if the finale was real or 3 1/2 stars if the finale was not true at all but a "what if" scenario in which I THOUGHT it was but apparently I am wrong.

Nothing like the definite articles to confound the Asian language as we see in the title of the film. The film is dubbed in English. Jûzô Murasaki was bullied as a youngster by Akai and his gang. Later in life Jûzô lives in apartment 13 while Akai lives in 23. He winds up working for a construction company where Akai continues to bully him. Jûzô develops an alter ego which enacts revenge.

The alter ego is "my real face" as it is disfigured from acid. This is a film that is well done, well written, but has low action level and the plot didn't overly engage me in spite of being clever. The dialogue I found boring. The entertainment value left a little something to be desired. The comedian on TV was cringe worthy.

The film has blood, bullying, violence and male rear nudity. The ending was unexpected.

Note: If pouring acid on someone, you should wear gloves, apron, safety goggles and a face shield...just saying. If you get acid spilled on you, 15 minutes of flushing is recommended. HF acids spills require special treatment.

"The Neighbor No. Thirteen" ("Rinjin 13-go") is a film absolutely packed with talent. Shido Nakamura, who plays the title character of No. Thirteen, is an acclaimed Kabuki actor who made his stage debut at age nine. He made his transition to film work, and has appeared in great films such as "Ping Pong" and "Letters from Iwo Jima". Yumi Yoshimura, who plays Nozomi Akai, is probably best known as one half of the pop duo "Puffy Amiyumi", and a cartoon character on Cartoon Network's "Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi". And if the name Takashi Miike, playing the role of the angry neighbor Kaneda, doesn't ring any bells then you need to look a little deeper into the genre of Japanese horror.

But a lot of famous names doesn't always make a great flick, especially when among them are a pop princess and an avant-garde film director, and the plot of the movie is being adapted from a comic book. In this case, however, it works. All the pieces click together, and the result is an innovative and entertaining film. Not bad at all for first-time director Yasuo Inoue.

The story is very topical to modern Japan, taking on the subject of school yard bullying. More than one young child has murdered another in revenge for intolerable abuse, and even more have commited suicide rather than face another day as a constant target. "The Neighbor No. Thirteen" imagines a scenario where this revenge is repressed, and allowed to fester across the years, until it boils up to the surface taking on a life of its own.

Like most Japanese horror films, the pacing is slower and the story more subtle than a typical revenge flick. Of course, there is blood and plenty of it, but it isn't a case of trying to kill each victim in a new and more cruel way, or an attempt to shock and disgust the audience with gore. There is more psychology than psycho-killer.
