  1. Bayer’s review of “Hara-Kiri” from a couple weeks ago was horrible. He basically took a giant crap all over his credibility as a film critic. So you give it a 3/10 but don’t bother to talk more about the film’s formal qualities, especially its precise, controlled mise en scène? There was nothing you found notable about Ebizo Ichikawa’s lead performance? I’m not saying you have to like it, but it’s depressing when such a layered, carefully-crafted movie like this receives such a surface-level critical reading that just basically states “it was too slow and the middle was predictable.”

  2. If the Apparition is true can’t they just all believe in Santa Claus and make him appear? How about the Easter Bunny? Sounds like that would be a real cool movie!
