Pulse DVD (Kairo – Kiyoshi Kurosawa) (NTSC Region 1)PULSE (KAIRO) – The cinema of Kiyoshi Kurosawa is a cinema of unanswered questions. Those looking for straight forward narratives with logical and satisfying resolutions should look elsewhere. There are no easy answers in Kurosawa’s films, only enigmas, puzzles, cracks in our world that let the darkness seep in from outside. The world of Kiyoshi Kurosawa is an insular world, a world much like our own yet touched with a certain madness that always threatens to envelope everything yet rises like the tide of a black sea, not the tidal wave of destruction presented in most films. In PULSE, one of Kurosawa’s most accomplished works beside CURE and CHARISMA, the threat comes through technology and its destructive potential is felt more than seen. In the end, when the full consequence of the madness that has been unleashed becomes clear to the viewer, one is faced with the subtle yet encompassing horror that is the cinema of Kiyoshi Kurosawa.
