    "My job may be immoral but at least I treat everyone honestly, damn it!" This movie was insane.

    There is no escape from the carp's gaze.

  5. Zissou's rating of the film The Pornographers

  6. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Pornographers

    Imamura y una afrente más al conservadurismo japonés, desde un nivel provocador, esto a partir de una historia (nuevamente) sobre el sexo como comercio, el incesto y el vouyerismo. Adicionalmente aquí existe una necesidad de justificar o comprender a los que la ejercen. Hay una reflexión sobre los límites de la moral y la represión. 2 escenas: la locura de una mujer y su final lírico. El protagonista es mitificado.

  7. Yunny Kim's rating of the film The Pornographers

    Better than modern day Japanese movies despite the budget issues faced in the making of this film. Remarkable film

  8. DVC's rating of the film The Pornographers

    Imamura repetía siempre que sus temas eran los de la mitad inferior del cuerpo humano y los del segmento inferior de la estructura social. Esta película es un buen ejemplo de esas inquietudes, con un interesante espectro de outsiders.

  9. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Pornographers

    What a Saga!! Irreverent fortelling of things to come and past and back again. An orgy of religion, family, tradition, transgression, all around.. Beautiful!!

  10. Mellow Dude's rating of the film The Pornographers

    a pretty dense film i must say

  11. Khashayar Mohammadi's rating of the film The Pornographers

    A remarkable low-bidget Japanese film. Imamura dared to experiment and include elements of European arthouse Cinema in this film.

  15. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Pornographers

    A murky film about murky moral ambiguities. The plot is disjointed and the pacing sometimes trying, which can make it difficult to follow at times. But it achieves a strange, almost surreal energy that builds a consistently compelling atmosphere while it explores its complex, enigmatic characters. Not without its flaws, but an intriguing classic.

  16. REH1101's rating of the film The Pornographers

    Imamura's bizarre classic has aged well, helping to support my belief that the Japanese New Wave was just as powerful a movement as it's French contemporary.
