November 20, 2018
A two-hour drudgery that solves a mystery whose answer was never pressing with the silliest possible solution. There's a wide chasm between realism and misanthropy, and River's Edge falls on the wrong side of that gap.

Gratuitous sex and violence in Japanese teen drama.

Yukisada takes the somewhat far-fetched story of the original in order to direct a film that focuses on the kids of the era, and the consequences the lack of guidance from parents and teachers ( which are almost non-existent in the film) have to youths.

Yukisada, a veteran who has made unblinking dramas about the young something of a specialty, has never hesitated to turn up the emotional and physical heat and River's Edge is no exception.

The movie is dour, and poignant, and dour, and poetic, and dour. But the positives outweigh the negatives, and it does end with a glimmer of hope among the gloom.

The strength of the film is less on the action than the fully embodied characters ...

An over-extended but otherwise involving drama.
