Couldn’t shake this one off either; it gets right in there. And stays. Nakata is a master of tone; he takes you to into his world and will not let you escape until the end. He makes you believe in the impossible – I mean how silly is the concept of THE RING, really? – and yet he has you gripped. I used to think DARK WATER was a story of a mother’s madness. Now I think it’s about a daughter’s memory.
