  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    >>> Prétentieux, fade et mortel... www.cinefiches.com

  2. sabrina's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    This movie was super deep. It seems as though through the narrative of the film, the internal frustrations and disenfranchisement of the protagonist were made clear. Notably, political, sexual and existential frustrations are made clear, yet he continues to film that which he thinks would be acceptable to the mainstream, while his reality took place outside of the camera's/society's gaze.

  3. Tibulle85's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Je suis venu, j'ai (un peu) vu...et le film m'a vaincu (au bout de 20 min). Tout cela a sans doute un intérêt pour les die-hard fan d'Oshima ou alors pour les étudiants qui font des mémoires sur le moment 1968 au Japon...Mais le tout fait vraiment film d'étudiant fauché, avec des dialogues mal maîtrisés et un scénario bien cryptique. Point positif: la chanson d'intro est vraiment sympa!

  4. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Quel plaisir de découvrir un film d'Oshima ! Un aspect Nouvelle Vague et expérimental intéressant, même si c'est parfois déroutant. Belle introspection dans l'outil cinéma qui devient le point de convergence de réflexions politiques, sentimentales, sexuelles et existentielles. J'ai cru voir Momoko dans la séquence à la table de montage... mais elle était bien pâlichonne.

  5. Ma-rewind's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Pas mon préféré d'Oshima... mais intéressant quand même

  6. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    A bit frustrating.. Nice soundtrack though.

  8. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Art films are often quite funny. Just by their nature and the things they have people say. "Ownership is a betrayal of the proletariat!" "Yasuko, read him a Trosky-ist bedtime story. It might help." Unfortunately a bit of his pinku got in there. Still, an amazing film.

  9. Tiphaine Tatin de Lattre's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    J'aimé chaque plan de ce film, mais j'ai pas compris grand-chose. Mon manque de connaissance du contexte politique sans doute. Sinon, je me demande à quoi servent tous ces viols dans l'histoire? Pour moi c'est le "Fight Club" ou le "Carnival of Souls" japonais.

  10. azoulay's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    L'absolutisme d'Oshima dans le temps de la contestation et de la radicalisation de la jeunesse japonaise qui mêle sa recherche identitaire à sa quête de vérité et de désir. Oshima semble se tenir en retrait, juste là, comme une camera qui vole ces moments intenses de la révolte d'une jeune femme qui hurle son incompréhension du monde. Ce n'est pas son film c'est celui de ces enfants du Japon.

  11. Jordan Ghetler's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

  12. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    One tough nut, though it makes a bit more sense once you realize nearly every scene is going to reverse something the previous one established. Hints of Robbe-Grillet and Coover.

  13. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Another great Oshima film that mixes absurdism with the political. Some amazing sequences. It's hard to talk about it on here.

  14. JM M----'s rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Fascinating film, though quite hard to follow. The opening sequence seems to sum up how I felt throughout the viewing; chasing after the ever illusive filmmaker..

  15. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Perhaps with this Oshima finally wins me over? (Then again I have yet to see "In the Realm of the Senses" or any other of his early 1960s work.)

  16. julianross12's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    Rewatched this film last night - it's incredible!! one of my all time favourites.

  17. Law's rating of the film The Man Who Left His Will on Film

    A film about cinema, context, conspiracy and communism. Thoroughly intricate. Incredibly rewarding when understood but thoroughly consuming to interpret.
