  1. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    A movie that changed me. I learned with it that Cinema is open for play. Expression has to be extended to every possible limite. That is a duty, and this movie does it in a beautiful way.

  2. HombreAproximativo's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    One of my all-time favourites. A surrealistic tale about the past and the unavoidable difficulties of reconstructing it in order to form a coherent history of oneself.

  5. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

  6. chillinonpluto's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    Visually interesting, however I'm not sure to what extend the photography is decisive to bring understanding about the characters or the narrative. A film that is first and foremost about how cinema, personal memory, trauma and History entangle, drawing this sense of mise-en-abyme. I also recognize a psychoanalytical approach, but I'm not sure of how influential those theories were to the Japanese avant-garde.

  7. Post Ironic's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    Beautiful, poetic, and so damn phantasmagorical. 'tis that farewell to Japanese rural life and culture... and it's quite lovely to see the kaleidoscope of wild, crazy, oddness and insanity Terayama portrays pastoral life to be, in contrast to the banal, dreary, insignificant post-postmodern urban life he illustrates. So very lovely. A lifetime of viewings to capture all the twists and turns in the heart of this film.

  9. ionosonde's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    pretty interesting film centering around memories and the connection of the past and present self. becomes more and more surreal as the movie goes on. reminded me of in the heat of the sun.

  10. Stefano Leone's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country

    Gorgeous movie. Visually stunning with some peculiar choices, like the colored filter for the circus scenes. Between Parajanov and Jodorowski.

  11. lndah's rating of the film Pastoral: To Die in the Country
