Japanese Summer: Double Suicide
Directed by Nagisa Oshima • 1967 • Japan
A sex-obsessed young woman, a suicidal man she meets on the street, a gun-crazy wannabe gangster, these are just three of the irrational, oddball anarchists trapped in an underground hideaway in Oshima's devilish, absurdist portrait of what he deemed the death drive in Japanese youth culture.
