Unwatchable - The World of Kanako review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
03/05/2017

An unwatchable mess of a film. The kind William Burroughs might have made using his cut-up technique. A mish-mash of confusing timelines, narrative non-sequiturs, disjointed close-ups and random editing. Like a talentless art student’s attempt to be different.

Apparently it’s about the investigation of a missing girl, but it makes no narrative or dramatic sense. It’s a mystery how it ever got released. Most viewers will have already given up on it before the opening credits appear.

Spoiler Alert

Couldn't watch more than 20 minutes. It was all over the place. Not a clue who was who but it was obvious it was boring and mad no sense whatsoever. Quite disappointed.
