I have this dream, I dream that one day I am going to be able to write a script that is good enough to be made into a movie. I know that I am far from that dream when it comes to skill. I need to continue to write and grow as a writer. Had I written a script today, Map of the Sounds of Tokyo would had been my end result.

The kind of script that is amateurish, trying too hard to build this intriguing atmosophere with a mysterious character that is complex and abnormal. Adding to that, some very complicated human relationships, a lot of angst and a funky little uncle that is supposed to be wise and deep.

Excuse me as I barf.

This movie is just proof that non-Asians shouldn’t do Asian-themed movies. I wonder why this project was given the amount of funding and support it was given by Spanish culture organizations and governments(!).

And now I am just raving about the bad direction and writing. I shall not get into the acting, seeing as I am out of words.

Rating: ½☆☆☆☆ 


Music is all I do: I work in music, I write about music, I listen to music.
