Overview

The Criterion Collection's Eclipse series offers monthly installments of lost or overlooked film classics, themed by director, with several titles per package. Volume 21, Oshima's Outlaw Sixties, hones in on the man commonly dubbed "The Godard of the East," Nagisa Oshima (b. 1932). It features five seldom-seen Oshima titles produced between 1965 and 1968, all but one of which had never been commercially issued on video prior to the arrival of this set. The set begins with the 1965 Pleasures of Flesh, a drama about a man who tries to use embezzled money to satisfy his carnal lusts. The second film in the set, 1966's Violence at Noon, follows the regression of one misguided and deeply confused man from political idealist to serial killer. The third film, 1967's Sing a Song of Sex, witnesses a quartet of students falling into sexual deviance and death just prior to taking their final exams. The fourth title, Japanese Summer: Double Suicide, also known as Night of the Killer, follows a sex addict and a would-be suicide who grow entangled with organized crime. Finally, 1968's Three Resurrected Drunkards, follows three innocent Japanese citizens who embark on a pleasant day at the beach but get mistaken for illegal Korean immigrants.
