  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Ceremony

    The soundtrack is amazing. I love Oshima, because he's not afraid. Grandfather is a proud war criminal, who can't seem to stop being evil, and spreads shame and suicide in the family. To add to the insanity, there's the surreal wedding with an invisible bride. After the wedding, Masuo becomes confused as to who or what he's supposed to hump. Nothing but misery for him.

  6. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Ceremony

  7. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Ceremony

  8. Drolin's rating of the film The Ceremony

    Certainly memorable movie with unique atmosphere which can be also found in Sing a Song of Sex. Not the best Oshima (Death by Hanging), but worth time without a doubt.

  9. azoulay's rating of the film The Ceremony

    Un clan dans un théâtre, des visages comme des masques, des rapports absurdes et vides, la déroute japonaise après la défaite. Une parole crue et violente, des cérémonies glaciales où les personnages errent et se déchirent, témoignent de l'irréversible mort d'une civilisation.Et au japon c'est un suicide. C'est puissant et absolu comme un chef d'oeuvre

  10. jimmymarkum's rating of the film The Ceremony

    A family saga apparently made of memories of ceremonies, but obviously there's more (surreal stuff) to it!

  11. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film The Ceremony

    You are cordially invited to attend the death of a country, fittingly torn between baseball and skulls--lots of skulls.

  12. Howard Orr's rating of the film The Ceremony

    A tough but highly rewarding film.

  13. Ben.'s rating of the film The Ceremony

    At this time, I believe this to be the best film I've seen from Oshima. It begins seemingly like a drama but turns into a powerful message on the clash between pre and post war Japan.
