In Tokyo, the freelance cameraman Takuyoshi Masuoka is obsessed investigating the fear sensation near death. When he photographs a man stabbing himself in the eye in the access to the subway, he seeks what the suicidal man might have seen to experiment the same sense of horror the man felt when he died. He finds a passage to the Tokyo underground where he meets a mysterious naked woman that does not speak, who he calls her F.

This is another Japanese flick, like Premonition (Yogen) that I wanted to praise much higher, but it just missed it by that much. The premise of the film is very compelling and most of the movie has that unsettling sensation (like when someone is staring at you from just outside your peripheral vision). There was one part in the movie where I had to rewind it several times just to check to see if I really saw what I was just looking at (if you've seen it already, you probably know what I'm talking about). When the voyeuristic main character enters into the underworld, he has a compelling conversation with a strange passerby and then after that he brings a cannibal chick back to his apartment to eat him in sessions. Got all that? I'm not giving anything away, so rent and enjoy!
