  5. patchwork's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    magnificamente fotografato ma frammentario, si avvale dell'ottima Sachiko Hidari, che costruisce una figura di donna cinica e testarda, che trasforma lo sfruttamento sessuale da parte del maschio giapponese in carriera. L'ironia è sempre dietro l'angolo (come nei numerosi fermo-immagine con commento autoassolutorio sotto forma di lagnosa litania da parte della protagonista) a stemperare le ruvidezze del contesto

  6. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    I often think of this alongside Onibaba-- two films about desperation in the face of massive historical forces.

  7. matelot's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    3,5 I know that is a really importan movie, but it's also a difficult vision

  8. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    "The insect woman" tiene dos cuestiones fascinantes. La primera tiene que ver con esa estructura cronológica que convierte la historia de una mujer en un filme épico. Lo segundo es sobre la evolución de ese mismo personaje. Con el pasar de los años veremos a una mujer cambiando tanto físicamente como en su personalidad. Es la degradación del individuo y la dicotomía ciudad/campo. Eso, el incesto y la represión sexual

  9. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    Compared to Pigs and Battleships, The Insect Woman is a much more mature film. The narrative is tighter and less confusing, and Imamura's compositional sense is out of this world. However, it lacked the punch the former film had for me. I was interested, but Imamura keeps us too much at a distance here and it doesn't quite work. More mature doesn't mean better, but it's still a good film.

  10. Brandon Nowalk's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    It's unnerving how much Imamura actually makes her look like a giant insect in bed.

  11. Aaron Oliver-Carter's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    Incredible film, the central performance is very powerful and raw. I'm looking forward to watching it again.

  12. Nathan Deming's rating of the film The Insect Woman

    Powerful, beautiful, and shocking.
