Yukio Mishima's life was an incredible work of art and this film captures it in a visionary, compelling, and inspiring way.
I have video copies of the English version and the Japanese version (Japanese narration with English subtitles), and would love to be able to buy it on DVD.
Thus Mishima himself gives us the key to understanding much of his work and life; he becomes obsessed with idealized male beauty and martyrdom.
