Kuroneko

Kuroneko ★★★★½

Yet another fascinating and engrossing tale taken from Japanese folklore that to my surprise, featured a considerable amount of depth given the simplicity of its story, exploring issues of gender and patriarchy alongside its themes of revenge. The cinematography is utterly exquisite, especially in terms of the lighting and composition which help to create some truly striking and ghostly imagery that's further enhanced by the rich black-and-white textures. An astounding work of art, and in my opinion, a top tier film in the supernatural horror genre.
