Recenzje krytyków

Instead of portraying sexuality and obsession explicitly, the provocateur [Oshima] chooses to be more gentle in his visual poetry, even as violent acts of nature and man triumph. It’s no typical POW film—the men are too starved and beaten to whistle cheerfully. There’s no great escape either—whether prisoner or captor, these men are trapped by their cultural mores, and by their dark pasts.

Oshima’s use of traditional filmmaking devices lends itself to his alternative viewpoint; long shots allow for all the characters to be equally represented and thus equally contradicted, an element of craft mirrored by Lawrence’s assertion that “we are all wrong,” and the symmetrical framing in many scenes is meant to reflect the traditionalism that Oshima challenges throughout.
