  1. redux's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    Misty glamour shots and a Glass "score" – doesn't he get bored? – don't make the tasters from the oeuvre very appetizing. The bio walks the line, but fails to properly put into evidence the absurdity of a right-wing nut running around with a private army. And ultimately buys the idea that suicide somehow makes this absurdity commendable.

    Worthy of a repeat viewing, I am sure I missed a lot. Still, pretty colors and pretty black and white photography.

  4. Eugene Sit's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    It's a fascinating construction which Schrader uses to interrogate the connection between the life of the artist and their creation.

  6. dionysus67's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    A flamboyant and sumptuous biopic told in seemingly unconventional and highly stylized means. There are some impressive set-pieces but the artificial beauty of the entire venture dissipates quickly in the Lucas universe of Schrader's Mishima. Ogata seems uncomfortable at points and the b/w flashbacks lack authenticity and ontological depth. OST is overused. It's an interesting film but way below the acclaim it has.

  14. Dan's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    Schrader does something approaching the sublime with the Mishima texts within the film and his ending but I can't help but feel that the real MVPs are Eiko Ishioka and Phillip Glass.

  15. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    I can;t think of a better cinematic examples of so many great artisans fusing perfectly together in one film!

  17. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

  18. MyAmanda's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    The first two chapters are stunning and very well made, but the movie starts to fall apart at the third chapter due to the clumsy correlation between Mishima and his work.

  19. FISCHER's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    Peut-être une des meilleures réalisations du metteur en scène... www.cinefiches.com

  20. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    A gorgeously realised study in transcendence, beautifully photographed and excitingly scored. It's a little emotionally glacial - perhaps to be expected given the subject - but that's small criticism for such a crisply delivered package. No small thanks to Schrader for opening (western) eyes to someone and something worth exploring further.

  21. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

  22. Chris's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    beautiful set design and cinematography, philip glass's score is perfect, and to be honest i had no idea who mishima was before watching this but still loved every second

  23. cineholic's rating of the film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    6/10. Schrader's use of multiple forms allows for a much richer film than your typical biopic. Still, Mishima loses some of its potency in its middle "theatrical" vignettes, whose highly staged form feels intellectually necessary to the film, but lacking emotional punch. Though Mishima's seppuku makes for an interesting framing device, the event itself when it finally comes feels odd and unrelatable.
