4.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuously Wacky, 1 Mar. 2004
This review is from: A Wild Sheep Chase (Paperback)
Murakami is very hard to compartmentalise. Just when you think you have a handle on his eerie brand of surreal description, he goes off on another indulgent tangent. This might sound irritating, but is in fact extremely rewarding.
The narrator of A Wild Sheep Chase, divorced and dispirited, is hired by a mysterious Mr Big to search out the sheep that once changed his life. Propelled into an eerie world of symbolism and otherness, and fuelled by his desire for a girl with the most beautiful set of ears in the world, this is a dreamlike journey that seduces and thrills in equal measure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood and blades in feudal Japan, 6 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Ninja Scroll [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Ninja Scroll is a visually powerful piece of anime revolving around the adventures of a lone swordsman who gets embroiled in some dastardly plotting and ends up taking on a series of satisfyingly wacky bad guys. Along the way, he hooks up with a mysterious old man and a female ninja with a poisonous reception for any would-be lovers.
The plot's simple, the violence frequent and vivid and the animation excellent. Thumbs up.
