Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 12/01/2000
"...A beautiful, droll meditation..."
Box Office - 11/01/2000
"...An intriguing study....Extremely striking. There is also a haunting electronic score from Ryuichi Sakamoto..."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2001
"...[Oshima] hates nobody and, wonderfully served by cast and camera, loves the reticence of a story immaculately told..."
Total Film - 09/01/2001
"...The lyrical mood is reinforced by a strong score..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/17/2000
"...TABOO is one of Oshima's finest films....Oshima has created a film of resilient, downright tensile strength that ends on a satisfyingly ironic note..."
