"The Sun's Burial"
Directed by Nagisa Oshima
Visually beautiful, eerily cool."
- Vincent Canby, New York Times. Oshima's most
blatantly amoral and extravagantly violent version of the juvenile delinquency drama, set
in a world of rival teenage gangs, pimps and prostitutes. Set in a hellish Osaka where an
exquisitely cruel femme fatale vies for control of the area's most profitable business
with the gangs. "Ruthless... Unfolds in a netherworld of teenage
punks. Tough girls wearing pointy brassieres vie for Cinemascope
screen space with brooding pimps in stingy-brimmed hats and Hawaiian
shirts." - J. Hoberman, Village Voice. Japanese with
English subtitles. Color.
