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.
