Excellent film by Imamura who has become one of my favourite directors of all time with Akira Kurosawa. I really like his anthropological take on Japanese society and this film depicts with stark realism the life of "monster" who proceeds to go on a killing spree with absolutely no remorse. He is also capable of attracting the love of women he meets and mercilessly uses for his ends. No excuses, no social justification. This man is a "natural born killer" and proud to be just that. I particularly liked the performances Imamura evinces from his excellent cast. The social context in which the main protagonist operates is also riven with conflicting desires (his wife's attraction to her father in law, the use of the boarding house as a location for encounters with prostitutes, his lover's mother's criminal past...). Don't want to spoil the fun for potential buyers so will stop here. Enjoy!
