"In the Realm of the Senses"
Directed by Nagasi Oshima
when it was seized by the New York
customs and refused entry into the United States, and the sensation of the New York Film
Festival, In the Realm of the Senses is, in the words of the Los Angeles Times,
"probably the most thoughtful work of and on eroticism ever created." Explicit
in its depiction of sex, and a film about the literally consuming passions of two people, the
film is most infamous for its final castration sequence. Japanese with English subtitles, Color.
