  1. animalcalls's rating of the film Punishment Island

    Might just be the secret masterpiece of the Japanese New Wave. DP Tatsuo Suzuki trades in the gonzo cinematography normally associated with the movement for exquisitely composed frames that are filled with dread and melancholy, while Shinoda himself edits as if recounting a nightmare. It's a striking, serious, powerful film that is staggeringly rich in every aspect.
