JAPAN | 76 minutes | 1967

A private detective is hired to find the la fiancée of a rich real-estate agent somewhere in the Tokyo underworld where true and false are indistinguishable. A great classic of the Japanese avant-garde, it’s one of the four films directed by the famous screenwriter Atsushi Yamatoya, known for his many collaborations with Koji Wakamatsu and for having (secretly) co-written Branded to Kill by Seijun Suzuki. While not as sexually explicit as the other “pink” films of its generation, it still sizzles with sensuality. Its famous soundtrack was one of the biggest influences on musician John Zorn.
