(aka 'Night and Fog in Japan' or 'Nihon no yoru to kiri')

directed by Nagisa Oshima
Japan 1960

 

 Nagisa Oshima's didactic 1960 film seems to anticipate the Maoist Godard: against a black background, different symbolic characters step forward to offer an analysis of the failure of Japan's traditional left and offer suggestions to the new wave of student protesters.

Comments:

Again we are caught between a great film and a lackluster DVD. The decision is left to you but this non-progressive, non-anamorphic image is far from what it could be represented as. Television tube viewers won't notice the extensive combing but will notice a few absentee gaps in the subtitles - neither of which ill totally destroy the film experience if you don't have high expectations. I *think* there is another DVD version of this fine film floating about - but can't think offhand. Perhaps someone can drop me a line and let me know. Certainly for $12 this is not that big of a gamble.
