Death Note

Death Note ★★★★

The only way to adapt for an american audience is to turn ur "super genius" kid with a god-complex into a vengeful pissbaby with a "normal people scare me" aesthetic, whining about the inability for the cops to truly bring about justice, from the right of the police state, utilising the morality bestowed to him by said police state, but at the end of the day just wants to make out with his cool emo gf.

This goes too hard. Can't believe I hated this when it came out, but my god this is cinema, and it looks absolutely stunning.
