4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant edition with superb transfers., 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pigs & Battleships / Stolen Desire [Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD] [Masters of Cinema] [1958] (Blu-ray)
I saw the dvd of "Pigs and Battleships" and it looks like a blu-ray!! Fantastic job from Eureka/masters of cinema. The film is very similar to Nagisa Oshima's "The Sun's Burial" (1960). These films are considered to be masterpieces of japanese new wave cinema. Although i am not a big fan of Oshima, i think that his film is better. I found Imamura's film a little flat. It was not as emotional or as dramatic, or as shocking as i expected. I think that both films are not very realistic or tough, as they should be. I marginally prefer the films by Seijun Suzuki, one of my favorite directors. I have not seen the second film, yet, Imamura's debut for Nikkatsu: stolen desire (1958).
