Uzumaki

This is a nice Japanese independent movie about a small town where an older man develops an obsession with spirals. When he dies there are spirals in every shape and colour all over the place. Spirals in the sky, spirals in ears and human beings taking the form of spirals. No character in the movie really knows why this is happening but a teenager walks into the classroom covered in green slime. This is of no significance to the plot. But if you want to see extreme anomalies the ones in this movie are definitely far out. I love Uzumaki, especially the sound design and the combination of poor picture quality and astonishing special effects. And I like the tragic love story in it.

  • The movie doesn't really finish telling the story, and a lot its elements are taken out of context. To really understand what Uzumaki is about, you need to read the comics/manga the film was based on. Available as a trilogy of graphic novels...
