(aka "Pisutoru Opera" )

Japan 2001

Stray Cat, the No. 3 killer in a guild of assassins, aspires to be No. 1, and so sets to take out her colleagues in a sometimes inscrutable, yet entirely entertaining whirlwind of a story. Makiko Esumi is enchanting in the lead role, and the rest of the cast fulfills their bizarre roles with tongue-in-cheek gusto. The cinematography is sometimes dazzling, and along with the stylized, fractured narrative, elevates what could've eaily been another lightweight action film into an above-average and fun experience.

Comments This is generally a very good transfer, with a sharp image, vibrant colors, and excellent contrast. There is unfortunatly frequent artifacting, mostly on static background objects, such as blinds and other items with patterns, though it's not enough to overpower Suzuki's dynamic imagery. The film's fullframe composition is faithfully maintained. Recommended.
