Memoirs of a Murderer

Memoirs of a Murderer

22年目の告白―私が殺人犯です― (Nijyu-ninenme me no Kokuhaku— Watashi ga Satsujinhan Desu)

Saturday, July 15, 2017



When a mysterious man (Tatsuya Fujiwara) announces his book confessing to a series of decades-old gruesome murders shortly after the statute of limitations has passed, its publication incites a media frenzy. Performing outlandish gestures of apology to his victims’ families while describing his crimes in proud detail, the self-professed killer’s eccentric flouting of norms and slick pompadour draws fawning admirers and ignorant media commentators. Watching the case he failed to solve become a bestselling celebrity vehicle, grizzled cop (Hideaki Ito) stalks this misanthrope-above-the-law before turning the media spotlight around on him. With bullets literally bursting through the camera lens, the versatile Yu Irie adapts Jung Byoung-Gil’s gripping Confession of Murder (2012) and adds more twisted turns to the original Korean mystery thriller.

2017. 117 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yu Irie. With Tatsuya Fujiwara, Hideaki Ito, Toru Nakamura, Kaho, Shuhei Nomura.

Part of JAPAN CUTS 2017.
