There isn’t much preface to a short film about honor driven ritualistic suicide. However, there are some very important things to note about this film. SEPPUCUCKOO appears to be the type of film that delivers whatever message you take away from it as there is no dialogue and the runtime is only two minutes and 31 seconds.
The best way I can describe this film is that it’s basically a beautifully executed artistic fever dream/nightmare. You see jokes thrown around here and there about Seppuku in movies and TV, but looking at it in this light was an effective way of putting this artistic ritual in a different perspective.
The film was emotionally driven, executed effectively and left me walking away with questions. I enjoyed this emotional, visually vulgar piece of work.
