  1. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    CINEMA, 35mm _ If Imamura documented better post-war Japan, if Suzuki had maybe more style, it would be unfair to forget Ôshima who i particularly like for his dryness. Some of the more cruel scenes here are treated with cold blood and somehow distance the way Bresson would have directed it. In this hellish Japan full of fury, Ôshima stays cool and smooth with his camera and through his staging.

  2. Lex Lucas's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    A heartbreaker. Inequal in its structure - it has some flaws - but it's a beautiful politcaly desperate and pessimist movie. The music is perfect and the ending is a bomb.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    >>> Tableau sans concession d'un monde interlope sur fond de misère et de déchéance dont on retient surtout les vingt dernières minutes...

  6. jchandleroc's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    Double-crossing and double-dealing amongst a particularly disenfranchised segment of Japan's youth. Callous cruelty interspersed with moments of genuine tenderness and tragic beauty. The camera at times ventures too close for comfort and at others keeps an alarming distance. Sensual, dystopian, and hopeless all drenched in a decaying Japan's dying light.

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    Beauté et poésie dans ce tableau de meutre, viol, trafic de sang et d'êtres humains,

  8. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    "There must have been a strain of corruption in Japanese politics at the time." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/06/episode-61-new-j-wave-part-one-here.html

    Continuer de découvrir Nagisa Ôshima film après film, grâce à vous, c'est vraiment que du bonheur ! (du bonheur sacrément dramatique, mais du bonheur) Merci pour ce grand moment

  11. azoulay's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    Prodigieux cinéma d'Oshima. Parler des images de leur force, de la mise en scène, de sa pureté, admirer les comédiens, figures de Kabouki, clowns tragiques, du film, tourné comme un cri comme une immense scène d'action où des danseurs désarticulés se heurtent et se tuent. C'est la bagarre infinie des humains dans cette cour des miracles d'une effroyable misère, minables et sans pitié. Génial

  14. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    Especially bleak chapter in the ongoing saga, "Nagisa Oshima: How Did He Get Away With This Shit?"

  15. Dionisius Amendola's rating of the film The Sun's Burial

    A brutal movie about a gang in Japan (Osaka) in the 60's. The violence, the misery, the hard life of Japan as rarely seen on movies, even now. You can make a parallel with "Mean Streets" of M. Scorsese. No redemption for the wicked.
