The word Complex has three meanings and all three are involved in this intriguing movie from Hideo Nakata, one of Japan's most creative and successful Directors.
Complex - a large housing development, a psychological condition, or a complicated situation. A young girl living in a decaying block of flats starts to experience strange feelings and is witness to supernatural events. Like the film Black Swan, we see things only through the eyes of of the female character who may not be the most reliable witness. What happened to the rest of her family? Is the strange kid who follows her around really living in the building? This is a masterpience of suspense and mystery and the truth of what really happened is only finally revealed in the closing seconds of the film. Brilliant
