Recenzii ale criticilor

[Oshima] made no pretense of being a dependable auteur, with his work progressively questioning the very themes he seemed so dogmatic about in films made just a few years prior. PASSION is arguably the best example of this regeneration, as Oshima not only challenges popular conception of its companion piece, IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES (1976), but also some aesthetic choices that had been the only persistent motifs of his previous work.
