"Vengeance is Mine"
Directed by Shohei Imamura
One of the most
strikingly original films of the modern cinema, Vengeance Is Mine is an
"eclectically horrifying portrait of a psychopathic criminal named Iwao
(the film) makes every other film on the In Cold Blood theme look like
child's play," wrote Tom Allen in The Village Voice. Enokizu becomes suspect
in the murder of two men who work for the government tobacco monopoly. A nationwide
dragnet is set up to capture him, but for 78 days he travels throughout Japan committing
fraud, cheating women and taking numerous lives. Japanese with English subtitles.
