VENICE REPORT: FIRES ON THE PLAIN


A good reaction for Lido fave Tsukamoto Shin'ya's newest film, the bleak war horror Fires on the Plain. Critics note the film's unsurprisingly high quantity of gore, which does turn a few of them off, but the general response has been rather good. You can read reviews here from Xan Brooks at The Guardian, John Bleasdale at CineVue, Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter, Jo-Ann Titmarsh at HeyUGuys and Peter Debruge at Variety.
