Lesson of the Evil
After accomplished and critically acclaimed works like “13 Assassins”, “Hara-Kiri” and the colourful sweetness of teen musical “For Love’s Sake”, Miike Takashi returned to the crazed violence that made him such a cult favourite with “Lesson of the Evil”. Following a calculating serial killer high school teacher who manipulates his young students for his own sinister purposes, it’s an incredible amount of nasty fun, building gradually from early scenes of tension and subtle madness through to an over the top third act that really is hard to believe. It’s been picked up for the UK by Third Window, for which Miike fans should be extremely grateful.
