Variety:
Review of Kôji Shiraishi's A Record of Sweet Murder (Aru yasashiki satsujinsha no kiroku)
http://variety.com/2014/film/reviews/hong-kong-filmart-review-a-record-of-sweet-murder-1201149808/
A journalist's exclusive interview with a serial killer becomes life-threatening in "A Record of Sweet Murder." Presented as a single take for the overwhelming majority of its running time, this claustrophobic psychodrama has its dramatic ups and downs before reaching a very clever and surprisingly touching resolution. Grungy visuals and bloody proceedings in the killer's dingy hideout won't be to the liking of most general auds, but genre buffs will prove much more receptive to this latest work by prolific Japanese helmer Koji Shiraishi ("Noroi: The Curse"). Fests with midnight slots should check it out; release details for Japan and South Korea are pending.

Here's a synopsis for A Record of Sweet Murder from Nikkatsu: "Soyeon is an active journalist on a mission for social justice. One day, she receives a call from a serial killer. Revealing himself as Soyeon's childhood friend Sangjoon, he is a fugitive on the run after escaping from a mental institute and killing 18 people. His request is, surprisingly, a personal interview. ¶ Agreeing to help her friend redeem himself, Soyeon brings a Japanese cameraman to the killer's hideout as requested. With no idea what to expect, she steps into a gamble to find the truth behind her old friend. They meet at an old, abandoned apartment. ¶ Sangjoon threatens the cameraman to record everything in one continuous take as he explains the reasons for the murders. To Soyeon's terror, Sangjoon goes deeper into his story and reveals that the finale is to happen now in front of her eyes. ¶ From murder to rape, confusion and terror, Soyeon desperately tries to make sense of the situation and prevent a terrible fate that may befall her childhood friend, as well as herself."
