Can You Read ハサミ男?

Enjoyed the slow burn psycho-thriller of Toshiharu Ikeda's The Man Behind the Scissors (2005). The twists and turns are interesting enough but nailing the real bad guy shouldn't be too difficult. Always love seeing Hiroshi Abe. And somehow Ikeda is able to make Kimiko Aso positively unattractive.

Grabbed The Reader (2008) from the quick picks at the library to finally see what the hub-bub was about... and sure, Winslet deserved the Oscar but the film is rather a snore. Expected a little more punch than lulls.
