edit: aku no kyoten

Nighttime is not the ideal time to watch violent movies (at least for me). When will I ever really take note and remember that? I feel very disturbed after watching Lesson of The Evil (Aku no Kyoten) which is a slasher with similar plot or rather, violence, to Battle Royale. 

It is directed by Takashi Miike, of course, who also filmed the drama version of MPD Psycho - probably one of the craziest mangas ever written about human personality disorder. The artwork is solid but the content is not something everyone can stomach. I guess I can stand violence and gore in print but not in motion.

That aside, I think the songs used in this movie are amazing but I’d be afraid to listen to the playlist again, honestly. 

At first I thought this movie came after Karamazov no Kyoudai (The Brothers Karamazov) and I was relieved to see Kento Hayashi looking healthier than he did in Karamazov. But a quick check shows that this was before Karamazov so, sad to say, he has become skeletal now.
