Review: Go Seppuku Yourselves (Japan 2021)

Japan Cuts 2021

You want a master class in how to make a monologue absolutely riveting? Look no further than this intensely angry short film that maps Toyoda’s anger about government failings during the pandemic onto the story of a samurai (an intense, excellent performance by Yosuke Kubozuka) made scapegoat for an older epidemic. Very much a spiritual successor to Harakiri, and with a funky Noh-meets-noise rock score.
