One of the finest japanese directors and an inspired choice of films. My personal favourite is Intentions of Murder.

Women as wonderful survivors in a cruel world ruled by losers 23 Jun. 2015
By Maurizio - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Another EXCELLENT series of films by the great Imamura with plenty of humour and sensuality together with excellent performances evinced by this master filmmaker. I really like the way Imamura sympathises and admires his female characters who are the true survivors in all three films and manage to come through unbelievable hardships and humiliations in a manner which can only get us to truly admire these wonderful expressions of the "life-force"!

PIGS AND BATTLESHIPS: The title is the best part! 27 Dec. 2014
By William F. Flanigan Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Film = barely two (2) stars; subtitles = zero (0) star; restoration = five (5) stars. Director Shohei Imamura has laid a very large egg with this amateurish, improvised, and un-engaging movie. (I'm surprised the studio risked damage to its reputation by even allowing its release to art-house circuits! More about this later.) The plot deals with the lowest of the low level of yakuza gang members towards the end of the Japanese occupation in the late 1950's. The direction and acting are so bad that it, well, gives the yakuza a bad name. (You'll see better productions mounted in high-school plays.) Then there are the subtitles. What a mess. They are so amateurishly long and frequent that the viewer has two basic options: (1) focus on the titles and forego the visuals and most of the dialog; or (2) turn off the subtitles and take your chances with the local (mostly Yokosuka) slang and dialects. (Of course, there is a third alternative: watch the film both ways--recommend only for those with strong constitutions!) Interiors meticulously recreate a portion of the local red-light district. But the action is clearly staged and phony. Same for the real exteriors where the action looks unreal even though the sets are not. Cinematography and lighting (wide-screen, black and white) are excellent. Music seems out of place and mercifully limited mostly to the opening/closing credits. Costumes often look like they are every-day clothes that belong to the actors. Now back to the film's title and its impact on the releasing studio's reputation. The battleships are American and the pigs (the four-legged varieties) are Japanese. But does the Director also have a culturally inappropriate and insulting metaphor in mind? The film is ambiguously anti-American. But seems clearly anti-Japanese. Skip this turkey. WILLIAM FLANIGAN, PhD.

AN EXTRAORDINARY COLLECTION OF IMAMURA'S EARLY MASTERPIECES 13 Dec. 2012
By HAN XIAO - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
FIRST, CRITERION'S DIGITAL TRANSFER IS AWESOME, ESPECIALLY COMPARED WITH MOC'S PIGS AND BATTLESHIPS BLU-RAY, IT STILL HAS POWER.

AMONG THESE THREE FILMS, I LOVE PIGS AND BATTLESHIPS BEST, BECAUSE IT CLEARLY SHOWED IMAMURA'S LATER STYLE: REALISM, HUMANITY PORTRAIT WITH SEX AND VIOLENCE, HOWEVER, NEVER GONE ANY "TOO" FAR, WHICH MADE IT WIDELY ACCEPTED BY CRITICS AND AUDIENCES.

I GUESS ONLY CRITERION'S FUTURE BLU-RAY EDITION WILL EXCEED THIS. DO YO AGREE? ACTUALLY, I HOPE NOT. BECAUSE FOR MANY TIMES I THINK BLU-RAY FORMAT IS NOT THAT SUITABLE FOR OLD FILMS, ESPECIALLY FOR B&W FILMS BEFORE 1970.
