Film Description

One of Oshima's most disturbing and controversial films, Violence at High Noon tells the brutal story of real-life rapist and serial murderer Eisuke, and his relationship with his protective schoolteacher wife. Oshima takes the format of the 'real-life crime drama' and uses it as a canvas to lay bare the lost idealism and decay in postwar Japan. Never presenting Eisuke as anything less than a complete monster, Oshima suggests how deviancy and male violence reflect an amoral and corrupt society.

Part thriller, part reaction against the austere Japanese cinematic tradition by using avant-garde techniques and a grim social commentary, this remains a fresh and fearsome piece of work.
