8/10 -- I mention this because it's different, and because I never see it mentioned.. It was just on TCM, I recorded it because of the 93% rating. A little long towards the end, it gets redundant, hence, the 8.

Was a favorite back in the day but haven't watched it forever. Back then I would have given it

Do you know any movies in the same ballpark of good quality?
I still haven't seen it yet, but Teshigahara made another film called The Face of Another that's supposed to be really good.

That's tough because I think it's a very unique movie. I tend to lump it in with other Japanese classics but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're similar types of movies.

I saw it some ten years ago and I remember I was intrigued by this film. 9 out of 10 for me. Your thread reminds me I should re-watch it.

8/10 very good film.

I can't think of anything exactly similar as it's very unique and metaphorical. Onibaba shares some traits with it I suppose.

Recently bumped the rating to
I apologize for any and all perceived slights which I did not intend to send your way. Sincerely. If someone reads a different tone, then they cannot but also read a different message. And as for those slights which I did intend, well you probably deserved those. Let's be honest. You're not exactly a picture of moderation.

Welcome to the human race...
last I checked, which was about a year and a half ago. A fine film by any account.
I really just want you all angry and confused the whole time.

Matt, you ever watched Akai tenshi aka Red Angel?

One of the absolute best Japanese New Wave films, it's almost a Hitchcockian horror film.
