In order of merit:


1.Death by Hanging (1968) ***1/2
2.Taboo (1999) ***
3.Empire of Passion (1978) ***
4.In the Realm of the Senses (1976) **1/2



I'd be interested in watching most of Oshima's films, particularly those he made in the 1960s and 1970s.

At the time I watched IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES, I found it to be overrated but a second viewing might improve my opinion since I have now gotten several more erotic art movies under my beltPosted Image.
