Critics reviews

Okamoto’s brilliant direction and editing turns every cut and movement into a musical beat, with Masaru Sato’s score encompassing Western songs, Noh recitations, Buddhist chanting, and kabuki shouts… Similar in absurdist tone to Okamoto’s Age of Assassins (67), it’s the kind of film which is still ahead of its time.
