Typical of the Pang Brothers, and many other Asian filmmakers, to drop a scene like this into an otherwise un-gory film. “Diary” is beautiful, sad, twisted, and a little scary, and it’s too bad that some viewers may be put off by the internal dialog manifested in these visuals when it’s the big dorky twist at the end that should repulse.
