Watashi no Kao or in english; "My Face," is a short, abstract dementia horror animation. It seemingly deals with issues of insecurity and self-identity. In it a little girl is asking repeatedly if someone is ready, as one would in a game of hide and seek, before revealing her face to the viewers, which twists into a number of abstract abominations.

The art is stunning, as one would expect if they had ever seen animations by the animator of this piece. It's unsettling, erratic and most of all, fitting for the message the piece seems to want to impart. The animation is exceedingly smooth at times read more

For fans of experimental horror, 'Watashia no Kao' is a potential treat. Personally, I can't get enough of well crafted avant-garde horror films, and this very brief animated short, while not exactly great, does certainly have many elements I found to be extremely impressive and interesting. The animation is heavily stylized, and the visuals presented are highly unique, creative, strange, etc. Those who appreciate surrealism as much as I do will definitely find plenty in here to like; however, I will say, the sound design is pretty bad. Maybe it was just the copy I viewed, but the audio was actually terrible. You could argue read more

Watashi no Kao is a hauntingly cool (yet sadly, very short) work by the (in)famous Keita Kurosaka.

Right off the bat, the story is not the focus, as there is very little.

What is of focus is the incredible art style that Kurosaka employs. A twisted, surreal depiction of humanity that embodies the grotesque, creating a style that is oddly part-realistic and part-surrealistic. This style is often seen in his works, and speaks to the unique nature of his artistry. I love it.

The sound design is very good, and backs up the intense imagery with an equal dose of intense sounds. It feels demented, out read more
