    HEROIC PURGATORY

    Yoshishige Yoshida Japan, 1970

    The follow-up to Eros + Massacre turbocharges its modernist style and radical subject matter, and the results are explosive. Shimmeringly opaque, the film explores the political landscape of ’70s Japan through its revolutionary students and vertiginous camera angles: pure, kaleidoscopic Yoshida!

    COUP D'ÉTAT

    Yoshishige Yoshida Japan, 1973

    Following Eros + Massacre and Heroic Purgatory, Kijū Yoshida closes his provocative, avant-garde political trilogy with this radical take on the life of totalitarian right-wing extremist Ikki Kita. Realized in a modernist mise-en-scène, Coup d’etat offers a remarkable view of 1936 Japan.
