VENGEANCE IS MINE - Blu–ray Edition
A thief, a murderer, and a charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Mishima’s Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura (The Pornographers) turns this fact-based story—about the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family—into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny examination of the primitive coexisting with the modern. More than just a true-crime tale, Vengeance Is Mine bares humanity’s snarling id.

Rats -- thought it was the 1974 actioner also known as "Sunday in the Country" starring Ernest Borgnine and Michael J. Pollard -- I thought that would certainly be an unusual Criterion title -- ah well....

 

This Imamura movie is a terrific one as well.
