I've never seen an Imamura film!

I hope to remedy that this weekend, as I've got Eureka's MoC edition of "Vengeance is Mine" on the way! I'm looking forward to it, and I suspect Ken Ogata will be brilliant.

Nightmares, Bill?


Yes, I just found the whole film to be immensely disturbing and depressing, particularly the scene showing what happens the family of the neighbor who steals the vegetables and the scenes at the end showing the sons taking their parents up to the mountains.

The film just got under my skin and I haven't watched it again since.
