5.0 out of 5 stars Time is Waiting in the Wings
Part of Oshima's outlaw series. It is a film about love, infatuation, dreams of something else and murder. The plot revolves around a man's love for a woman and how he copes with her rejection, linked to the legacy of the numerous efforts he made to woo her.

Whilst it may have the plot of a romcom this is anything but...

Quickly after the credits...

Part of Oshima's outlaw series. It is a film about love, infatuation, dreams of something else and murder. The plot revolves around a man's love for a woman and how he copes with her rejection, linked to the legacy of the numerous efforts he made to woo her.

Whilst it may have the plot of a romcom this is anything but...

Quickly after the credits this hits the high road to hell, with a descent into darkness quicker than a body jumping off a ten storey building. Our hero makes a pact with Faust that establishes the central core of the film, but as it proceeds it takes a twist here, and then another twist there to finally head into the white noise voids of nihilism.

Combining 60's camera chic, beautiful groovy Japanese women the hero constantly tries to buy his fun. Along the way he meets a series of traumatised beauties as he embarks upon his quest. All the women are dominated by men wanting to enter them and then control their lives, so Oshima is reflecting back onto a world where freedom was constrained by gender.

Seedy Japan oozes through the frame, along with ecstasy and utter dread. A beautiful haunting film well worth the effort to dig.
